Sunday morning Derbyshire urbex mission...Myself and a couple of friends ventured over to Matlock Bath for an explore that surpassed all expectations! 
A former mine, the Rockwood Pigments factory was used to blend colours for use in the likes of paving slabs. Prior to this the site was used for grounding iron oxide / barytes / bone char until around the late 1960's. 
Not much info available regarding it's actual closure. All I can confirm it that it's definitely been closed down a long time!
Shot using the Fujifilm Classic Chrome film simulation mode. Edited in Lightroom.
Enjoy the photos...
