    Default Seddons packaging and print northamptonshire


    Hay folks, well I woke up this morning and could not wait to get out with my camera.
    Well this was the first site I visited and recorded last year with my two very good friends Chris and Matt but on my first visited I had a crap basic 2.0 mega pixel compact camera which had a habit of switching to a random setting every time I put it in my pocket so all my shots had a brown affect to them.
    Well the site I revisited was seddon packaging and print the building orient house was built in the late 18th century and was first used as C&K clothing then was used as a printers supplying box’s and printing for the boot and shoe industry which played a major part in Northamptonshire’s industry supplying most jobs in the area. And then over the years it also supplied boxes for jigsaws board games and such the like as well as shoe boxes.
    Well seddons had two factories one with virtually identical design which was cross the road from this one and has now been converted to stylish flats. Seddons went bust and cease trading about 3-4 years ago. Well to my disappointment could not take many photos of some of the original features as I was collared by a nosey neighbour so it was time for a sharp but shady exit before the :policeman: turned up so on with the shots and hope you enjoy.

















































































    And this is how it looked in its prime



    Thanks for looking peeps
