    Default Old Print Works, Geddington - September 09


    Hi,
    I've been lurking on here since early last year, following many posts with admiration. Looking through some old shots I thought it was time to post something.
    The photos below show an old print works that was in a village called Geddington in Northants. The site is now totally demolished and now re-developed.



    The lovely 1900's red brick buidling which is still standing, was the village off-license. Sadly I wasn't able to get access the brick building.

    The 50's/60's factory to the rear was owned by various businesses through the years, ranging from engineering, electronic components and most recently the print works.

    It fell into decline around 2000 and gradually became overgrown and very unsafe to enter.

    It was really strange, the best part was the old brick Off-licence but it was impossible to enter. The gear under the tarps was all print equipment, with some considerable value too.

    Not bad for your first post. You got a nice sky for a backdrop.

    Hi Glynn, it was on Queen street, next to the White Hart, you’d have never known it was there as it was behind the red brick building. Not been back for years, have they built on the land yet?
