    Just a quick one of this, largely stripped, site:

    The site is divided into two main buildings, this one was covered by Wellingtonian last year..

    And you can see his report here:

    And this one:

    That myself and 'The Queen' took a look at last weekend.

    Not a lot to see in the main part of the building - but work your way upwards, and there is evidence of their trade, and the wide range of 'big' names they produced goods for...

    Indeed, head right to the top - and it becomes button and label nirvana:

    Fibreboard cutting patterns, hand edged with brass strip, to prevent damage from the pattern cutters knife.

    A nice little wander - and worth a look if you are passing - probably not road-trip material though .

    One last pic - the original factory gates, hidden away in the basement....

    Nice one @Styru This building was properly locked down when I visited.
    Have the local "residents " been helpful??

    Yep, but the local homeless, as opposed to the metal fairies I'd say - only one - very small, reasonably well hidden guest entrance (and no gift-shop) :thumb
