    Bit of a balls-up on my part with Flickr so this is a repost.

    Mitchell Grieves manufactured needles and elements used in industrial knitting machines for use in the hosiery and knitwear industry so prevalent in the area. The main factory is still going in Leicester, however the Coalville plant scaled back production over the years and closed completely a few years ago. It is due to be demolished to make way for an Asda store in the near future.

    I visited this site a month or so back with AndrewB on my first foray north of Birmingham, the original plan was to go a bit pro-hobo in GE Thorn and arrive outside nice and early, but the scene of devastation that greeted us at Thorn put that plan to rest. We pulled up outside Mitchell Grieve at about 11.30pm and a quick scout found us our access for use in the morning. An uncomfortable few hours kip in the car saw us safely inside the sprawling factory at 6.30am on a dreary March morning and a trouble-free visit was had.

    This will be quite pic-heavy. It was crammed with so much stuff, the samples office and drawing/planning office held so much win.
