    Finally I get round to posting my 1st report

    This is a compilation made of 3 visits here, hence why I'm pushing my luck with the number of pictures. Hopefully there's enough variety to make it worth your while. Actually, after spending a fair few hours exploring, I've got quite a soft spot for the place now. And I'm starting to see industrial urbex in a different light.

    Anyway, here is some actual information:

    Built in 1868 and rebuilt after a devastating fire in 1906. Became home to NJ dyeworks in 1907 (although the emblem above the entrance says 1914). The company was taken over by Coates Viyella and then a management buyout secured its future in 2001. But this was short-lived and finally the curtain came down in May 2010. Currently there are plans to convert the site into 125 dwellings but there is local opposition as part of the plan involves removing 2 millponds which are an ecologically diverse habitat.

    In the event of a major incident the first thing to do is to put the kettle on and have a proper brew
