    Hi everyone :)

    Firstly, thanks to Layz for giving a heads up on this place, I wouldn't have found it without his help.

    I love the architecture on this building, it is an intriguing maze of walkways, corridors and assorted rooms.
    I unfortunately didnt find a way into the tower :( but I will revisit sometime I hope.

    Here are my pics:

    I saw the same things in Forest Mills, anyone know what they are? I suspect they are for fitting clothes...

    Thanks for looking, I took over 100 photos on my visit to the Viyella Works, and I strongly recommend a visit for anyone who is in Nottingham :thumb
