    So after visiting the V.M Paper Mill (http://www.28dayslater.co.uk/forums/showthread.php?t=72099), I took the train to visit the TST Dye Work in an neighbouring region.

    From previous pictures I've seen, the place seemed like a smaller scale of Tone Mills that I’ve done before in the UK, so I wanted to see another mill in another country and took the chance to see this one.

    Sadly, despite all the effort to get here e.g. walking, train, walking, it was another almost empty shell. I guess I was a little too late. Although, mostly empty there were a few interesting artefacts in the buildings that kept me busy. However I didn’t take as much pictures as I wanted as I had to catch the train back home that evening and was knackered already after walking 15km to see this and the previous paper mill!

    Anyway, a bit of history regarding the Dyework. The factory used to host the dyeing unit for one of Italy's leading clothing manufacturers, and was operational up to the turn of the 21st century when cheap imported labour significantly made the place uneconomical to run. It is now being slowly dismantled with all the heavy machinery being removed and very few stuff remaining.
