History -
I really can't find a whole lot of history about the place, I'm sure I did previously but alas not now. Originally Lord and Brown Hosiery and at some point was "Omar Knitwear" (as evidenced by paperwork inside), it's been known as various other names too but was abandoned some time in the 1990's and has sat there ever since.

I spent a lot of time in this place and I mean a ridiculous amount of time spanning numerous visits with various different people (and took suprisingly few pictures due to being overly excited). A customer at my old work place mentioned there was a "place that you'd probably like" and gave me directions. A few days later after a night of exploring myself and Nightvision thought fuck it, what else is there to do at 3am than go check out a tiny factory in a dense residential area opposite a factory that never closes? So off we popped and thus was the start of my many many fake domestic arguments with people outside this place whilst we were waiting for dog walkers etc to piss off and not wanting to look dodgy (it really works too).
The first time we accessed the building we had to fight our way through a wall of cobwebs and it was evident that no one had been inside for a very very long time. The pictures are various from multiple visits hence the obvious differences in the times of day they were taken.

Thanks! It's not one that pops up often, I think a lot of the Leicester lot did it all at once and then no one has really looked since!
