    These derilict factories lie on the banks of the river Lune in Lancaster and are soon to be demolished, so we thought we'd snap a few last photos before they are gone forever. With a bit of research we narrowed the original purpose of these buildings to probably being part of an an oilcloth manufacturers, originally built in 1855 and owned by James Williamson (source).

    I've highlighted in yellow on this 1913 map the buildings which we explored; the rest of this site and the other factories further along the river have now been completely demolished as part of the Luneside East Regeneration Project.

    Photos taken previously by another photographer before most of the buildings were demolished can be found on flickr.

    Below are a few pictures from our flickr sets which you can find here, here, and here:

    I was only wondering what was left of this recently. That pump house is really nice, shame the pump motors have been smashed for the windings.
