    Default Lace Factory Nottingham Sep09


    went on a explore recently with shadow to the lace factory,very interesting place with a few hidden surprises like a basement that is sealed full of machines and only way in is to abseil in,i carried the kit to the building to abseil into the basement weights a bloody ton but by the time went around the building could not be arsed to abseil down,sorry about pictures of the machines under the floors it was taken by lowering the camera throught the floor























    fully sealed off basement these can only be see through rotten floor boards








    i enjoyed this visit was very good as alot of history in this building
