    The Saint Georges Works is a sprawling mass of different age and style buildings. The frontage, a handsome curved Victorian building is the oldest, with two wings of different eras coming off the back to make a giant tear drop shaped building. There is a courtyard in the middle, but on top of the first floor.

    I don't know the opriginal use of the works, and all the websites about the building focus on its transformation into a new "urban village" with a Tesco, shops, hotel and flats.

    In its latter years the building was used by a domestic appliance company, making "Swan", "Cygnet", and "Mouilnex", making irons, toasters, kettles etc. Inside half a dozen or so small presses are still in situ, along with a couple of machines I have no idea of their use. Other than that floor the works is pretty gutted, but the fabric of the building is very nice, and made for a cracking expore.
