    Default Pancake Factory, Derpyshire - Dec 2012


    We had been on a return visit to the Rainbow Factory round the corner, but having spotted a recent report on this place it would be rude not to pop in, so a trip to the very edge of Derbyshire with the Urban Spaceman.

    An interesting little wander, the two main mills straddle a country road just off the main drag.

    Also known as Woods Mill, this was once home of Volcrepe from about 1931 until 2002 who manufactured rubber shoe soles and wonderful items luxury for the Ministry of Defence such as gas masks for horses.






















    Derp millage for an wet Sunday afternoon. A nice little mooch. No stunts required, just a few soggy floors in parts.



    Thanks for watching

    Zero reports, zero participation and then a PM asking for info tends to offend - I delete such PM's so don't waste your time.
