    Tullis Russell once occupied ground in Stoke on Trent, and ran a paper mill - possibly known as "Brittains Paper Mills".

    This time I ventured into the main building, which has three floors to climb. The entrance was pretty sketchy, and I was a little nervous going in but once in and being quiet for a few minutes I realised the building was completely empty.

    The ground floor was pretty empty, some pellet cases were here and there, so obviously people had been shooting guns in here. And old lift is STILL in this building, including all the mechanisms. The doors were wide open and you could see straight up. There was a little locker room behind the lift.

    The middle floor was pretty grim. Lots of old bits of machinery strewn across the place and some dead pigeons... well, pigeon carcasses should I say. A little office was here, which had long seen some people ransack it. The ladies toilets were here too, and still rather intact - including the hand drier, sink, toilet, and ladies things machine.

    The top floor was absolutely horrible. The door was closed too, with a little window. I peered through to see the floor covered in crap. I covered my mouth and nose with my shirt and opened it. Dead pigeons galore and crap every where. I think the chaps loo's were here but I didn't stay that long to check properly!

    1. The chimney and the building

    002.jpg
    2. Inside I go!

    003.jpg
    3. Looking up, you can see the ladder and a few rungs (or whatever they're called). Needless to say, I did NOT climb it

    004.jpg
    4. The ground floor, pretty bare inside

    005.jpg
    5. Remains of some flappy doors & a warning sign

    006.jpg
    6. "REORDER POINT" painted on the floor was slowly fading

    007.jpg
    7. I'm guessing this was possibly an access point to vehicles or something? There was two. Well, whatever it was it's now a pond - so much so, there was actually a little frog swimming in there

    008.jpg
    8. And there was also this creepy as doll

    009.jpg
    9. A sign of what was actually here

    010.jpg
    10. The lift shaft

    011.jpg
    11. This little locker room still had around 5 or 6 lockers in there

    012.jpg
    12. "1982" - showing the age of 'em! Inside, some still had shreds of old newspaper cutouts stuck to the door

    013.jpg
    13. Well, I was kind of one...

    014.jpg
    14. Up we go!

    015.jpg
    15. Middle floor, a bit of machinery type stuff was left in here, as well as dead pigeons! The floor was concrete covered in metal, which was flexing underfoot slightly

    016.jpg
    16. Robbed out office

    017.jpg
    17. Indeed! There was a few hanging signs in here, but I didn't bother photographing 'em all

    018.jpg
    18. Machine remaining at the back of the room

    019.jpg
    19. A bit more crap on this floor. In the back you can see the smashed office windows (next to the blue thing) and the lift doors

    020.jpg
    20. I guess I will then...

    021.jpg
    21. Finally, the top floor - a room full of shit, pardon my French

    022.jpg
    22. Back down we go then!

    Here's a few more little bits and pieces I thought were nice

    023.jpg
    23. Smashed out light

    024.jpg
    24. A hook stands on the window sill on the bottom floor

    025.jpg
    25. Time stands still...

    026.jpg
    26. Yellow foam fire extinguisher still stood up, on the middle floor (I think it's on that floor)

    027.jpg
    27. Awesome old fashioned light switches

    028.jpg
    28. Some big piping on the ground floor

    029.jpg
    29. And a robbed out fuse box. Some of the fuse blocks were on the windowsill next to it

    030.jpg
    30. And so, I took my leave! Very colourful corridor
