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

      It's been months sense I got out and explored an abandoned location.  There wasn't much left here, but it still felt great to be back on that horse again.

      This was an odd explore, from the front of the building it looked like a standard office block but the inside told a different story.
      First off, some fairly standard looking CNC machines - but the further in we ventured the clearer it became. There was an entire production line left in situ for making alloy wheels!
      Each stage of the build process had its own machining area and the wheels were transported from one area to the next on a huge conveyor system - everything from milling, shot blasting, heat treatment, lacquering and pressure testing. Many of the machines had lot numbers attached and it was my guess that it wouldn't be long before everything including an immaculate rack of machine tools were auctioned off.
      We gradually made our way to the front of the building, where the only notable room was a small laboratory - still half equipped. An enjoyable explore and a good end to the day.
      Visited with Jaff Fox and thanks to H for his info.














      This sign, roughly translated means: food and drink are strictly prohibited in the lacquer plant.




      Mr. B!

      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.
