    Default Frisby Jarvis / Farben Works. Leicester 05. 09.


    Frisby Jarvis Building (formerly St Leonards Works, Worsted Spinning Mills) on Frog Island, Leicester was built in 1867 and is a Listed Grade II building. Closed in 2001 and partly destroyed by fire in 2005, it has stood empty ever since. Some effort has been made to stem the damage on several roofs and scaffolding has also occasionally been put into place on the site which will hopefully help to preserve this gem for years to come. I know its a well documented site but its always nice to have an update on the state of places.
    Large site with lots to see, was a good day out even in the rain !

    Visited with Bardo and Reaperman.














    Not too sure what these are, some had a red liquid in. They were very small too. Cute little things really !

    Thats a blast from the past! Shame the big bit went up in flames, but what is left still makes a good explore :)

    Hello,

    I think the little glass red things are probably unused fire sprinkler bulbs. Was there a fire sprinkler system that you noticed? Si
