This jewel is situated in the middle of a small Italian town. We had a very early start which paid off...

I don't think this place has had widespread exposure even on American explore sites before, it's kind of in an area which is often overlooked as far as explores go with almost nobody local on the scene.
Titchener's is a large iron works company still operational in upstate New York to this day, they make large scale metal items such as staircases, railings and ornamental architectural items. However they also had a factory which was responsible for pioneering the glued-together staples we know today, operational from 1880 to 2005 when it closed down. They not only made staples, their various wire products were used in cash registers, computers, hospitals, in clean room manufacturing areas, on equipment used by the US military and, most obscure of all, to hang chickens by their feet on automated plucking lines.
Around a third of the factory has been demolished but the remaining sections have been left to rot and decay. It turned out to be a lot nicer inside than I thought it would be initially, and is quite an interesting place to photograph. After closure, a lot of the old staple-manufacturing machinery was donated to a technology museum as well as boxes of old records and catalogues found inside.

Still miles behind in posting some reports up, but this was from an small trip to Engerlandshire and Welsheepshugger land between Xmas and New Year. First stop of this particular cold morning was one of two mills I visited. The first is known as Tweed Mill, and access is not the easiest, but a bit of decent balance and no stopping half way over its simple enough for what is a bit of a gem of a little mill. Ever since I first saw this place appear on the forums a few years ago, I knew it was right up my street, lots of nice natural decay, and plenty of bits left behind to see!!
The second mill, only a mile up the road, was jam packed with machines, making it a bit harder to get the images I wanted, but did my best, known as the Wool Mill.
Many thanks for looking, as always, click the pics if you want to see more or visit my Flickr
