History:
The history of this former textile mill began at the end of the 1800s. At the time this whole area was booming due to the growing textile industry. When operating this facility expanded throughout the years to become the second largest textile mill in this town. The customers which bought their upholstery here were mostly rich castle owners or wealthy hotels mostly located in Great Britain. At the end of the 60s though the textile industry began to decrease pretty much in all of Europe. This was due that mostly asian countries could provide textile for a much lower price. So after this this factory had less and less money for improvements in newer machinery. At the begin of the 2000s, just after the 100 years anniversary this historic mill closed for good,

Visit:
Now after more than a decade of silence this place has unfortunately been stripped of most of the machinery and the first decay began to set in the huge bright halls. Well luckily not all of the machinery, somewhere in the hall was this old press which was nearly a 100 years old. What also was cool was the old administration block which was pretty much still untouched from the day this place was closed.

Now on to the pictures and video
