The ice factory - Grimsby

Recommended Posts

I had a quick look at this when I was in Grimsby recently. Only from the outside but it looked really good and is on my list to get round too one day.

Hello,

Hope you don't mind me chirping in.

The Ice factory is in trouble, it is owned by APB who are a-holes. They just want to let this building fall down as they are not allowed to knock it down.

However there is funding (not tax payers money) to save the building, if enough interest can be found.

They would like for it to be an independent space/museum/shops/cinema, try help regenerate the area.

I know there is a group of people called Project Ice they really need people to get involved/show interest, they really want more urban/edgier photos and would like to hear from people who have experiences of when it was a working factory or any memorabilia. (p.s... not everyone involved are suits)

I had a Monkey who wanted to break in on his own to take photos, but he got scared and bottled it. I'd really like to find some other monkeys to help, if anyone knows any?

Disclaimer: I am in no way connected to or involved with Project Ice or the Ice Factory Trust and none of my comments may be linked to them.

Ok, wrong choice of words. There are no trespass signs or warnings, and security that patrol the whole port will just ask you to move on if they see you.

Anonymice, I'm not really sure where you're coming from, but there's a couple of things I do know.

1/ you're in the wrong place, what ever you're after isn't here, I suggest you could look at what we do, learn a little and then go and take the pictures you want yourself.

2/ none of my friends on here, or myself care to be called monkeys, so I would appreciate that you refrain from using that terminology again.

If I am wrong, then I apologise in advance, if I am right, I suggest you move on, and try elsewhere.

thank you

Describing us as Monkeys will ensure you get a hostile reception here or on any other forum ok..

Your choice of words were wrong as soon as you started typing.

I suggest you think a bit more carefully about what you say or suggest next time, or you will upset a lot of people

      I visited the chocolate factory already more than four years ago. Inside it was partly very dark - much darker than it looks in the photos. The plaster had fallen from the ceiling; a gray damp mud lay on the floor and stuck stubbornly to the shoes.
      After the owner died, the factory was closed over 20 years ago. The widow of the manufacturer still lives in a dilapidated house next to the factory. In the past years, the condition has worsened a lot. Meanwhile, the roof of the former factory has almost completely collapsed.

      The Marconi Radio Factory
      Visited with Skeleton Key, Priority 7 and Tstranger1066. This was the 2nd stop on our day trip to Chelmsford.
      The place looks absolutely fantastic, full of bits and bobs, but unfortunately after only 20 minutes we got nabbed by 4 really amicable members of Essex Plod and asked to leave the premises, so it's on the cards for a revisit
      The History
      Marconi's New Street factory was built in 1912 next to the Great Eastern Railway. A railway siding ran across New Street into the factory yard and brought materials in one end of the works and took finished radio equipment out of the other.
      At the South end of the building two huge aerial masts once stood, the 450ft (137m) high "Marconi Poles" formed Chelmsfords most prominent landmark.

      During the Second World War the Marconi Company employed more than 6,000 people in Chelmsford. Producing vital military communications equipment, the New St factory became a target for bombing and was hit in May 1941 with a loss of 17 lives.
      In 1920, two years before the BBC was established, the New Street factory made history as the site of the first official British sound broadcasts including the famous concert by Dame Nellie Melba which was heard all over the world.







      The workers entrance





      I learned everything I know about attenuation of radio signals and the impact and mitigation of ionospheric anomalies from this book,
      not to mention two-dimensional ionospheric tomography over low-latitude regions

      Thanks for looking

      In the time after my recent fame in teh nooospaper of doom I received a rather interesting email. From the owner of a derelict factory stating that it was to be redeveloped and that he wanted some photos of it before it was changed forever.
      Now let me explain, that this is not a report, but only a recce, I cannot possibly show the true scale of this place from a single set of photos, its friggin huuuuuge, god knows how many floors, a unbeatable view over nottingham (as it is on top of a cliff) and most interestingly, a basement level full of machinery that is currently inaccessible, however the owner has agreed to let us abseil down to it through a large hole in the floor
      The purpose of this visit was to walk around the site with the owner and he could tell us some of the history and warn us of the unsafe bits to let us bring the right kit next time. These photos i took as snaps on the way round.
      On with the pics!



      The tower, there used to be a spiral staircase to the top
