#derbyuk -post industrial post.
Took a few photos on my way to view #format13 exhibition at Artsmith gallery on Monk St. Derby This area- Abbey St, Woods lane, Monk St used to be host to small and medium sized industries. These have gone and the buildings are empty or reused. This reflects the theme of the Format13 theme: the Factory.
This used to be a warehouse and offices and then became a Chinese restaurant. Now empty. What next?
Abbey St used to host a number of old technology printers. Now gone.
The building next to the defunct printer’s shop now hosts a halal wholesale butcher’s.
This disused workshop is suffering from rising damp.
To let. Suggested uses?
This building has seen a number of uses since its heyday including a body building gym. Sounded like a sound studio today. Poorly insulated..
And there, tucked in next to the tattoo parlour, the art gallery.
