    Thumbs up Sybro Spinning. Slaithwaite. Huddersfield.


    I know there's one or two folk who wondered what the place looked like with all the machinery in situ! It was eventually all stripped down, packed up and shipped to China :( After this happened, all hell broke loose with activity from the local chav brigade and pikey's after their cable fix. It was sad to see it go down so rapidly. And the current reports on the place just cement my thoughts. So without further ado...... I give you......

    Sybro Spinning......

    The Unseen Bits :)

    Surveying the scene through the bushes.



    And with a splash of colour.



    I do like a rusty tank.



    Extraction vent..... PINK



    Best go in then eh!



    Internal garden courtesy of mother nature.



    Well whoever manned this station was not only an arsehole! But a wanker as well.



    A rather long conveyor belt.



    And even longer impressive spinning frames.



    Italian engineering.



    Twisting frame.



    Beautifully crafted carding machines.





    Huge feeding hopper.



    Carding frames galore.... Love it.







    Dust extraction unit.



    More heavy goods goodness.





    A tiny sample carding engine :)





    And to finish with......

    No vices here



    Apart from the naughty mans locker ;)



    I hope you enjoyed that as much as I did shooting it. Explored with fannyadams.

    Derelict Places is sort of depressing sometimes when I find yet another British company clearing off to China. But don't worry ! We can all work in the service sector taking each others washing in when it rains, or ironing other peoples shirts, or walking other peoples dogs - these are all 'growth' sectors of our (tee hee) econonmy.

    Sybro was a susidary company incorporating Spectrum yarns which is still active today from the mill (Spa Mill) in the background of the attached pic. It's only a short walk between them both. Due to economic decline and cheap imports they had to scale back and run production from one point. All is not lost :)

    Nice one matey
    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.
