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 wanted to go here more for personal reasons than anything else. My mum grew up in Chelmsford, and she and her mum and a lot of their friends all worked for Marconi at different times.
      Well what can I say it sure is a mess - pikeys and graffiti artists have been at play here. Having said that if you move away from the factory floor areas and into the other areas, it's not actually too bad. It's totally stripped, hardly anything to show what it's purpose was which is a shame.
      Also it's huge - it really is a pretty big site, you don't realise until you're inside. There must be 4 very large factory floors, with several other large spaces as well as a 5 story high admin block, which although very samey does get better as you go higher. Then there's the very oldest part right at the front.
      Visited on the spur of the moment with Obscurity and his misses - cheers for a good day people

      It has to be said, this bit's pretty bland


      Amazingly all the glass is intact, but the ceilings trashed.

      Old meets new


      There's a few bits left


      I love the roof of this building.



      Reception area was pretty good, shame it's no where near as neat as it was in earlier reports, but it could be worse.





      The main lobby of the oldest part.



      Although it was trashed in parts, I thought it was a pretty good - it would have been fantastic to have seen it in it's prime.

      Hi all
      Done with UAP and StussyUE
      Gray, Dunn & Co the bakers and biscuit manufacturers was founded in 1853 and received a Royal Warrant from Queen Victoria. The firm's factory was built in Stanley Street in Kinning Park in 1862 but destroyed by fire thirteen years later and had to be rebuilt. In addition to biscuits, Gray, Dunn & Co baked cakes and bread at Kinning Park.
      The firm was acquired by Bilsland Brothers in 1912. Today, Gray, Dunn & Co's colourful biscuit tins are collectors items.












      Sorry if its a bit pic heavy

      Couldnt make my mind up which section to put this in so I settled on here, its a factory but only really shot for the stairs.
      Fun day out with fellow explorers Project Mayhem, AndyK and Matt Kriegaffenine Hampshire
      Not much to say, good fun morning no complications, like it should be
      I make no apologies for the number of stair shots




















      cheers
      The Baron

      This former slate factory started in 1897. In 1995 the factory was closed and it's still abandoned.
