Bridon Wire Works, Ambergate - February 2016

Visited with Judderman and Zer01 on a mini tour of Derbyshire.

Opening in 1876, the factory closed in 1996. The Johnson family ran this factory manufacturing telegraph wires, fencing and suspension cables for sale on the global market. In the second world war Bridon manufactured telegraph cables laid underneath the English Channel as part of the UK war effort.

2016 and we have a vast empty building where shit graffiti artists come practice in the hope of some day becoming something near the standard of the Sheffield artists - gems do stand out, others are shockingly bad.

I did for some reason had high hopes for this one and it was on my "to do" list for at least the last 12 months but sadly 2/10 from me being this its just a giant empty building - although probably ideal for wire wool spinning at night.
