UK Hodgon's Mill, Robertsbridge - March 2017

Recommended Posts

Hodgson's Mill, originally known as Scat's Mill in Robertsbridge, Sussex closed in 1999 after work took a dive. The modern extensions have all been demolished, the land and the grade II listed old mill and workshop are up for redevelopment although nothing seems to have been accomplished in over a year since these proposals were made - http://www.ryeandbattleobserver.co.uk/news/big-plans-for-former-mill-site-in-robertsbridge-1-7185778


This was a last minute plan B with @Miss.Anthropeafter finding the police outside our original destination. I'd never heard of it before but it turned out to be alright inside, lots of bits of machinery left and a few old signs dotted about. Some of the floors were seriously dodgy though, we retreated from certain sections for fear of collapse. Thanks goes to monk for letting us know about this one and saving the day from being completely fruitless.

It's funny seeing this again, as I know exactly what you mean about the floors. It's the building that tried ending both me and one of my fellow explorers at the same time, as he put his leg through a floor directly above where I was stood resulting in a cascade of wood and metal pipe parts landing on the floor right in front of me...

We took a look around this recently, a new planning app has been ziptied to the front gate and the building secured with a tangle of barbed wire I couldn't be asred to fight :( we were literally a few days too late lol

Some very successful views. I like the shooting perspective of the third photo and the sixth picture with the plants that grow through the window. But I also like pic 4, with the red buttons and the red door.

      After hearing about the permanent closure of this well known super store giant, we felt like a part of our childhood was gone forever.
      In the store we visited, we found the names of those loyal workers written on the wall with one of those people having  worked there for 20 years,
      but unfortunately we couldn't go back and get a photo due to my camera running out of juice.
      But all is not lost as there is a full video on my friend's youtube channel so check it out!
      Here are the best photos we managed to get, thanks for looking.

      Brick production at the Clock House Brickworks dates back to 1933 when the Clock House Brick Company Ltd was founded to exploit a rich seam of Weald Clay that had been discovered.  By 1941 the original company entered into liquidation due to the war effort and the lack of need for the hollow-block ceramics they were producing. A share of the company was sold to the London Brick Company, who in 1945 eventually purchased the company to avoid a full closure.  Production was vastly increased, in part to the housing boom of the 50’s, and during the 60’s the site was rebuilt to cope with the increased demand.  The London Brick Company was acquired by Hanson PLC in the 1980’s and the works was refitted. In 1998, Clockhouse Bricks were used by three major exhibitors in that year’s Ideal Home Show and in 2000, Clock House was said to be Hanson Brick’s main soft mud production site, producing around 42 million bricks per year
