    Visited with tweek

    It was one of those mornings. Up at 3am and primed for something serious, I made my way into the city in the pouring rain to meet tweek to begin an assault on a potential heap of mega win. It would have been brilliant, but as we both failed to realise, it was one of those mornings. We got failed off, and over our commissary brew and bacon sarnies, we decided to head over to a plan B for a bit of rotten industrial wastage.


    Spring Side Paper mill has been home to manufacturing of one form or another for around 150 years and was operated most recently by Kruger Tissue who wound down operations here in June 2006. The site was being moth balled early 2007, with planning permission being granted for a 2.4m meter perimeter fence in Jan 07. http://www.blackburn.gov.uk/upload/pdf/10-06-1140.pdf
    The site itself is a mish-mash of old and new buildings, with the newest being built in 2000. Most of the massive warehouse buildings are empty shells, containing nothing but the remnants of the copper fairies, but one or two of the older buildings are rather nice little mooch..
