A rather sizeable building for an afternoon explore, nevertheless we stuck to it and managed to get a good overall recce of the building itself which was like a maze. The building itself stretched back to around 1800 with many different sections such as a bank, butchers and the cosalt business itself. The first two images are around the top floor, would highly recommend an explore at this location regardless. The following information is taken from Wikipedia:
Cosalt plc was a diversified marine safety and leisure company, based in Grimsby, Lincolnshire. It was a constituent of the FTSE Fledgling Index.

The name Cosalt was a portmanteau of the company's original title The Great Grimsby Coal, Salt and Tanning Company. Formed in 1873 as a co-operative of fishing vessel owners, it was a communal best-value support services company involved in servicing and supplying a variety of products and services for fleets, fishing, and other vessels, providing:

Immediately after entering we were greeted with a fairly comical first aid poster.

Because of the low lighting it was hard to get a focused shot, plus using a Gopro is mostly guess work.

The ground floor was far too desolate to capture, it was mostly stripped and hard to emphasise.

Unfortunately there was no hot water to make a beverage.

Quite an unusual concentration of moss in this room, smelled quite strong too.

The Board room which used to contain a rather large oak table.

Old pictures of some gentleman, can't say who it is myself but if anyone has any information that would be helpful.

We've all done it. There's a preview function that you can use to get a look at the composition before pulling the trigger. A bit of history is nice to read too, even if taken from elsewhere, credits where due.

I have just driven through Grimsby half an hr ago, most of the buildings near the docks look derelict, I will have to check them out.

I've got my name in that lift shaft from when this building was up and running I put the year with it but can't remember what it was big place I used to go to work with my dad on a week end at this place. Shame to see it like this is the old doors still there with the rotating doors leading to a big fancy stair case
