Lead or Rumour info - Potential Chemical Plant, Crich

Hello everyone.

Ages ago, my school used to go to a holiday camp thing in Crich, Derbyshire called the Briars. The coaches that took us to daytime activities would almost always take a left out of the gate, and through the town, however one day, the coach took a right, and went down towards the Ripley road. I remembered the other day some sort of chemical plant being there; a quick google maps search reveals a pretty much decimated site, but maybe there could be something of interest there for someone nearby.

It's Stevenson's Dyers, it's largely gone now but was pretty empty when it was still there.

Cheers for the info, and sorry about the map link not working :(

I've found a site that shows a couple of pics. Looks a relaxed mooch all in all.




Cheers,

Stevensons dye works. Its in a very small village called Bullbridge. Just down the road from Crich. It doesn't exist anymore.
The whole place has been knocked down ready for new housing development.
