    Report - Rockwood Pigments, Matlock Bath, Derbyshire

    A nice little explore that involved a few buildings, but sadly not much left of the interiors. Both of the mines on the site could be a good further explore, but both look either very dirty or incredibly unstable. You can check out all my photos from this explore here on my Flickr...

    The surrounding buildings definitely look very neo-egyptian and it almost makes the site look like its a themed area out of a closed theme park. There isn't that much other than the buildings and the kilns to see here, but still, a worthwhile explore. You can check out all my photos from this...
