    Explored this one by myself.

    I won't go too much into detail in regards to the history of the place as this has been researched in great deal by other members.

    In brief, The Macintosh Mill was the world's first commercial rubber factory and as a result played a significant part in the rubber industry, having links to waterproof clothing and to the army, this building provided jobs such as India Rubber Mat Puncher, Mechanical Rubber Worker, Waterproof Garment Finisher amongst many others from the 1800's onwards up until its closure in 2000.

    Whilst researching I also came across small facts such as during the time of World War I, through the presence of rubber making machinery, Observational Balloons were manufactured under this same roof.

    Across the site was another building that housed a crane, although I did this would still be active. Amongst the bird crap, I was able to take some shots of the crane control pad and the roof beams that have been left to rot.
