    Guilford Performance Textiles in Sudbury shut down in 2011. The company is still operating, just not in Sudbury any longer. According to their website "You could very well have Guilford textiles in your car, truck, sports shoes or window blinds at home. Guilford fabric sits behind the scenes while enhancing the look of vehicle interiors, filtration from sunlight or supporting athletic wear for better comfort and durability. Our fabrics have a myriad of applications from health to fashion..." so there...

    I had a look at the site back in December 2012 on my yearly visit to the grandparents who live in the rough area but that day i happened to be wearing a rather expensive pair of jeans and jacket and decided against trashing them both, it was always in the back of my mind and a few days before Christmas 2013 i was in the area again, i allowed a couple of hours aside from drinking whiskey and eating too much food for a little wander, before i had to rush back to the safety circle of the M25 i call my home.

    Was a pretty nice mooch and very relaxed couple of hours i spent in there, surprisingly its not quite as trashed as i thought it would be, nor did it have any graff and its amazing anything is left in there as the place is as wide open as could be. Probably wouldn't of bothered sticking up a report but because its kind of local to where i used to live, i actually lived in the town for a while before i moved down to London, i thought why not... Plus i haven't done a report for many many months and thought id start with the 25 strong report backlog with the most recent.

    Enjoy
