The Britannia Works in Atherstone was built in 1828 but Wilson & Stafford didn't gain full ownership of the site until 1896 as before then the site housed several different firms.

Wilson & Stafford were the last remaining felt hat makers in the UK until they went into liquidation in 1999.

Nowadays the factory is largely stripped bare but has a brilliant character especially on the very windy day me and Flubs visited. This was the start point of a three-day roadtrip, so over the next few days I'll post up most of what we found along the way as I don't want to flood the forum all at once!

Thanks for looking, more pics here
