    One of the best reports I have seen in ages. Beautifully photographed and real feeling in the accompanying commentary. At the end I was left with a deep sadness at so many jobs gone and nothing but 'service' jobs to replace them.

    Thanks for taking the time to do this properly.
    Forwards - in all directions!

    Thanks all it's always a pleasure to get into a site first, and start uncovering the history from scratch. :)

    Great report, as usual, Wolfism.:)

    From someone who was in the flooring trade (Carpets and Linoleum) I can remember the price increases as the the cost of Jute rose significantly in the early to mid ninetys, then it was substitued for polypropylene for both linoleum and carpet poduction (with the exception of the most expensive Axminster and Wilton carpets). Even Nairns moved away from Jute in favour of PP, as it was cheaper and more dimensionally stable.
