    Just searched for Wade Springs on Google. Their contract address is a couple of streets away, there are some more 'mill' buildings and one that I saw 2 cars go into when I was around the area.



    This was maybe used for mainly storage in recent times hence some old boards in places.

    That looks real interesting, especially the art deco element - can't say I share OM's optimism about its art deco interior!

    i looked through the window of the 30's deco office building many times, there is wood paneling and old lighting in there as i saw it lit only a few months back ! check those loverly art deco metal framed windows in the office, thats if they have not been boarded over now.

    I really do like this one. Love the building with the Brittania Mills done in brickwork under the top arch, and love the art deco building. Agree with the others, would love to see inside this part especially.

    Excellent pics and an excellent find.

    Cheers,

    :) Sal

    Was doing some meter reading in the area last week, so nipped to have a look. The building is still in the same condition, but 2 blokes in 'smart' clothes and wearing hard hats, walked the length on the building giving it a good look, then went in the yard and into the building on the right.
    If i'd had my camera with me, i'd have beencheeky and asked if I could go in to take some pics

    Great photo's and find :) what I find strange is that the Derby University campus I was based at was also called Britannia Mill it was so great inside, they kept both goods lifts too! (one kept on getting stuck between floors haha).

    Sadly, it's been modernised now.
