Flakes, originally uploaded by rutty.


I started working on Beeston Business Park in 2000 and was sad to leave (for Coventry) back in 2007. Now that I’m back here with my new company it’s nice to get reacquinted with some of the old buildings.

Our labs used to be in this early 20th Century workhorse of a building. It used to be a telephone exchange factory back in the day but has seen plenty of other uses since.

The site used to employ a couple of guys to paint these old buildings but it doesn’t look like they’ve been around for a while. This end even has some sort of plant growing out of a vertical wall!

Flakey paint makes for interesting photos but I do hope that they keep these buildings going. It’d be a shame to lose them to some sort of unimaginative brick box
