    Tonedale Textile Mill / Foxs Mill

    Sitting here with my warm dry feet, it seems an age ago that we were traipsing around Taunton searching out it’s hidden (or not so) derelict sites.....

    Thanks to Incognito for driving, and for the prep work too! This was a nice lazy explore for me!

    This mill has been out of use since the mid to late 90’s from what I can gather. There has been a mill of some sort on the site since the early 1790’s, concentrating mainly on the production of woollen and worsted fabrics.

    The mill is known quite historically as the location where our traditional “Khaki” coloured army uniforms where developed. In the 1900’s, the “Khaki” colours where given the royal seal of approval by the then Prince of Wales, which saw the end of the classic British “Redcoat” soldiers. (did we have any common sense back then?)

    A small extract.....

    After the trekking around in and out of windows and over and under walls (actually, perhaps not under walls), my jeans do actually look quite a good “khaki” colour themself!
