  1. History This factory was opened in 1900 and made cardboard out of straw, in that time this product was very popular so 8 years later the made another factory next to the other one. In 1968 the factory closed due to competition from abroad, after the factory was closed it was sold off to a men who repaired and sold off machines. The new owner only did nothing about maintenance of the old factory so the factory complex decayed rapidly. in 2005 the original factory was demolished and the other factory was luckily protected as a monument. Later in 2009 the restoration began on the still standing factory. 6 years later the company who began with the restoration began to have financial troubles so the factory was abandoned again. After being abandoned for 1 year the factory was bought on a auction for an incredible low price, after that the restoration was back on track again. Explore We went on a Sunday so the workers waren't working on the building. When we got there, there was a door opened so we could enter the beautiful old factory building. The highlight of the building was the old Turbine and the old ovens. Hope you enjoyed my post!

  4. As I can not remember if I posted this and find no record on this site This is a late post. After a few fail splores within the Boilton area This was the only place left. If it was not run by steam it was fired up by compressed air.....or held up by screws on d'a walls... There are many forms of engines within this cramped museum and if your lucky enough like I was i ended with a photo shoot and talk with Alf (Fred Dibnah's right hand man) After leaving here is only seamed fit to see Freds house, short drive later and been told £12 each we decided to grab a pic from the road side instead.....when i'm back in work I'll call again.
  5. Cracking day out in Belper to a rally I have never been to before showing some classic wagons, wish i could give you some history on all these wagons but there was too much going on through the day so there was no time to talk to any of the owners..... H 'n' S eat ya heart out !!! Hope you liked the pic's, perhaps if anyone can shed some light on any of the wagons but posting it on.....cheers for looking.
  6. On with the Military Further in the day came the fly over with the Spitfire.....shame the 'Yanks' arrived !......look out for friendly fire !!! Fly-by Time...
  7. As I was passing this location (like I have many times over the many years) I kept seeing a crane boom but no one ever in the yard until today !, Reet I had to ask so pulled the car into the top of the yard a weathered looking bloke strong in stature came over to my car which by now I had got out of and I asked if I could take some photo's some time in an evening when it drops dark (night time photography) his reply was 'NO' and so I said sorry for wasting his time, I was just about to leave when he asked who are you, what do you want the pictures for and why at night which I replied with my name and that I was an engineer who also was into photography and caving/potholing etc also I have my portfolio in the back of the car if he wanted a look.....after a few seconds he said yes i'll look at your photo's around 10-15 mins later seeing pictures of bigger wire controlled cranes from the Coniston area and many mine/potholing pictures he shut the book, gave it back to me then said 'come look at this'.....I didn't need to be asked twice....off we tootled round the back of the buildings and hell I didn't expect what I was shown a fully operational steam crane and not only that but it was mounted on a set of railway lines and it could self propel in both directions, it even came with its own flat carriage for hauling goods on and both units were in very good sted.Both myself and Mr Briggs talked about engineering and my full job role etc.......I must state I felt 'reet at home ere' amongst the muck and grime of engineering from the past. When I go back I will obtain as much info on the crane including locations it worked and owners if possible but for now here are some pictures... I must say she is one well endowed lady !, hope you like the pics of what I believe to be never posted anywhere.....
