    Very short n sweet history

    Built in the 1850s as a textile mill, it was once occupied by the Notts hosiery firm, Thomas Hollins, developers of the famous Viyella brand. Radford Mills was the first Viyella factory, and important part of Nottingham’s rich heritage in the textile industry. Since then it has been used by P T T Design, JB Armstrong Co Ltd, Excalibur Reproductions Ltd, Riche Fashions and Scene Photography to name a few, the city council bought the mill in the 1950s, there have been lots of plans for demolition and refurbishment but it still stands strong.

    A really good history

    Just like other mills its had various uses and been sectioned off internally, sadly for us there were quite a few areas we couldn't access towards the Ilkeston Road end of the building , but it was still a great explore one i have been wanting to do for ages! Pretty comical entry must of looked something like a circus act to the bloke that saw us. Oops but did he look like someone that cold be bothered to make "that" phone call…No! So we continued….
