History

Taken from @Brewtal's report here :https://www.28dayslater.co.uk/threads/dawson-fabrics-ltd-skelmanthorpe-march-2018.115703/

"Built in 1770 by William Marsden who's daughter married Richard Field who then traded there for a number of years until forming the partnership of Field & Bottrill in the 1880's. Now Dawson Fabrics Ltd. The company name Dawson Fabrics closed the doors at Greenside Mill sometime in the late millennium years with the loss of 70 jobs. Administrators from Leicestershire insolvency were called and are now handling the company affairs. The company was said to be doing well with orders from high street stores such as Marks & Spencer. Dawson Fabrics were making fleecing for jackets and blankets. The company closed it's premises on Wakefield Rd in 2000 with a loss of 60+ jobs to focus on their other sites including Greenside Mill. Outline planning for 149 houses have been submitted with a demolition order which was denied but as recently been re-submitted with agreed amendments."

Visited with @EOA and @Ferret bumped into @little_ boy_explores on the way out too. Quite a relaxed one, heard stories of dogs but nothing to be seen. The alarm wasn't on when we went but it was when I popped back. Pot luck with this one I think. It has a bit of everything though so although it's been hammered it's deffo worth a look in.

Done a mighty fine job of that mate! Glad to see it’s still looking good in there. Who is it that leaves those alien head stickers, anyone know?

Not a clue on the alien one mate, I think the green one is some graff artist from Sheffield.

Quality photos there, liking the people shots also!

Could do with going back here myself one day as I only managed to see the part with the nice machines before setting the alarms off and doing one.

Cheers dude, if you do let me know. I missed the offices and the workshops. Wouldn’t mind a wee nose at em.

Loved it here as well. Those machines made me happy, spent far too long trying to get my pics right in that last room! No dogs when I went but plenty of turds. Dog ones, not human... nice pics again.

Are you getting mixed up with dboroyd? I read that the top floor there had been stripped. Never got to see that for more than a minute or so and the alarm went.
