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

      production ceased in 2015 most of the buildings demolished and operational plant removed; seems to be visited occasionally by security company whilst it is flogged off

      Not a bad little mooch this one. Quite a lot of area to cover with most of it being stripped unfortunately but, there is still stuff to see and some nice decay in parts. It seems the building was used to make carpet underlay form 2002 until 2013. I guess its been abandoned since then. Visited with non member Paul.
      History
      The Arrol-Johnston Motor Co., which had been in operation since 1896, opened its Dumfries factory at Heathhall in July 1913. The manager, Thomas Charles Pullinger, had been inspired by the Albert Kahn designed factories of Henry Ford in America. Kahn provided the design for the Dumfries factory, and it bears more than a passing resemblance to Ford's Highland Park factory in Detroit. The Heathhall factory was said to be the most advanced light engineering factory of its day in Scotland.
      The site was purchased by the North British Rubber Company in 1946. It then became Uniroyal Ltd in the 60's, and in 1987 changed yet again to the British subsidiary of the Gates Rubber Company. It has been known as Interfloor since 2002.

      This is from a exploration on the 13th of May, 2013. These pictures are mostly the east buildings from the interior. Second set will be south end and my favorites, the roof.
      Brach’s Candy was a Chicago (and world) candy factory legend. This facility, one of the largest candy factories in the world, was mostly built in 1921-23 and then partially rebuilt in 1948 after a tragic fire and explosion killed 11 employees. At its peak, the facility was over 2,200,000 sq feet (670,560 meters) and had 2,400 workers. Typical vulture capitalism in the 1980’s into the 2000’s destroyed the company and this facility closed the doors to workers in 2003. One of the office buildings was blown up for the movie Dark Knight in 2007. Due to much of the west complex being gang occupied and the neighborhood sporadically violent, I chose the last cold day of that spring to visit, on Mother’s Day, a very big holiday in the USA, figuring even gangbangers might take an afternoon off to visit their mums 🙂
      So I got there mid-afternoon and only left as it was getting too dark to see much, let alone photograph. I tried to go back one more time, but it was not possible to access, and within weeks it was in the process of being wrecked. For the USA, it had more interior metal than many buildings I've been in, which usually have been picked clean by scrappers, which gave it a nice ambiance. Overall, it was a very dark location, due to most windows being bricked up and it was late in the day when I visited, but what light I had was beautiful. The last pic in this set shows downtown Chicago in the distance.
      I'll post set two in a week or two, then start digging through files for other past and recent explorations.
      Many thanks to everyone who welcomed me on the introduction board. Thanks to all who share, some really amazing reports here, and looking forward to looking around more, but figured I should share something for starters 🙂
