Havoc and I first visited the sleepy hamlet of Ambergate, Derbyshire in September last year, we had a couple of leads up that way and Bridon Wireworks was one of them (the other was Stevenson's Dyers, well worth a look btw).
When we visited back then most of the manufacturing sheds were very doable and made for a decent set of pics, so as me an SmileySal were in the area we thought we'd pop in for a chilled out mooch around.
It was getting on for fairly late in the afternoon when we arrived and much to our surprise a further building had opened up, so we were straight in. I don't think either of us expected quite what we actually found.
Although the building itself wasn't huge, well, not compared to the wire making sheds, it was absolutely stuffed with labs and offices, all full of paperwork and scientific equipment. I didn't know which way to turn there was so much to look through.
Sadly, due to the fact that we spent so long in this one building, it was dark by the time we exited, so the pics of the manufacturing sheds are from last year lol.
Old school typewriter, nice.
I enjoyed this place first time round, it's even better now.
What it's all about, wire...
A good 'un just got better.
