Decided to try somewhere local for a change and this is just down the road. This was an eerie visit, the factory has so many pigeons flying around inside which kept making me jump and upon exploring the rooms I stumbled across what looked like a homeless person's bedroom. The contains for mixing the toiletries are still there though everything else has pretty much gone.

History
There's not a lot of history online about the factory; it was built in 1990's as a toiletries and skincare factory and for at least the past 8 or so years it has been shut. The building itself is slowly sinking in to the river Biss and attempts by the council and locals to buy the factory and knock it down has been refused by the owner who seems to be holding out for a better offer and letting the eye sore stand in the meantime.
