Industrial

Robert Fletcher & Sons Ltd, Greenfield

A return to one of my favourate sites of last year (last years visit). The almost post-apocalyptic mill still sits defunct as the day the employees walked out never to return. In the last 12 months the buiding has started to decay and water ingress is apparent in many places …

Brooks Dye Works, Bristol

Up and till last week I was still of the asumption that this place was still being used by Brooks. How wrong one could be, infact it seems like its been empty for over a year and being in St Werburgs a combination of pikeys and sqatters have started to …
