Probably the Largest Factory in Derbyshire (Not)


I was told about this place by a graffiti artist and am very grateful for that information, I never even knew of its existence. This building was huge and I wasn’t able to establish exactly what it had been although it was clear that it had at some point been split into several units and most recently parts had been used as an airsoft site.

The place felt totally abandoned even the graffiti was not recent, although it was fascinating.

It had obviously been a popular graff spot once, I didn’t know who most of them were then, but I do now.

Nature had been doing a paint  job of its own, I love these “Life finds a way”(Jurassic Park)  shots.

In what had been offices was more graffiti and much more evidence of the airsoft guys.

It was quite a maze, I couldn’t guarantee that we saw it all and we were in there over three hours.

Overall there was some really good stuff here and it was a fun place to explore. It will always be remembered as the first place I saw a graffiti’d  caravan. I was gutted that the whole site was flattened within a few months of our visit. This was a place I would have liked to go back to.
