    Default Dyers Labs - Ambergate January 2013

    I am a douche bag, I must have driven by this place 60000 times since moving up to Derbyshire world 6 years ago. Its massive, a total mess, full of graffiti, fucked beyond all belief yet still is quite photogenic. Lots of buildings with not much in and then you have the stair case in the top building-As some of you might know, I love stairs. Its a good one, spirally and stuff.

    some info:

    "Stevensons Dyers in Ambergate; Derbyshire. Set up by the Stevenson family the company constructed the factory at Ambergate in the late 19th Century the dye works provided employment to many people in Ambergate and the surrounding towns and at its peak in the 1970ís the factory employed more than 1400 people. Well known for its good working conditions the factory played an important part in the local community and employees were encouraged to join clubs and socialise outside of work.

    Stevensons remained in family ownership until 1966, when it was acquired by Coats Viyella Clothing and in 2002, it became part of the Quantum Clothing Group. However due to economic conditions it was soon forced to close the plant at Ambergate."

    There are some pictures from others but this set here by M D Allen shows how much its gone down hill....

    Also a report from that other site here from 2008.

    Visited on my own, pre-work and it was -1, too cold. Here are my pictures...

























    Full set here on my Flickr. Thanks for looking. Cheers to Martin AKA Skankypants for the heads up.
