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

      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.

      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.

      Founded in early 1800's the complex was initially used as a hand weaving mill. Following 30 years of manual work the means of production changed when the small mill was bought by a young interpreneur who changed the concept to include hydropower. A few years after that, the mill changed owners again when it was decided to enlargen the mill and convert it into a fully functional factory, instead of a small hydropower driven mill.
      Successively more and more looms and heavy machinery were added when a textile producer outsourced his production because of monetary advantages. During WW2 the production was stopped and the factory used for producing telecommunication materials for the military.
      Because of the decline of the texile industry in Europe and outdated machinery the factory had to close for good in the 2000's. Now it's slowly consumed by nature and open for urban explorers like me.

      This is an old paper factory were they would make cardboard, The factory opened in 1905 and closed in 2005 after the company was taken over by an other company which stopped the production.
       
      There was also this old burned out Jaguar which was quite nice to photograph.

      Today I visit some kind of factory buildings near a train station. I'm unsure if this was part of some other factory or if those were standalone buildings. One from the two had a cafeteria, so it appears plausible that this was a seperate firm. I'm saying that because the buildings are located on a industrial area where many companies, warehouses and such are located.
       
      Enjoy!

      Not the greatest photos ever, but yeah... mine are the after shots (shown first) and the before shots (shown after) are 25 years old and not mine.
      I hope that all makes sense
