Mitchell Grieves, Coalville

The Mitchell Grieve company produced needles and elements used in industrial knitting machines. This factory site has remained derelict for as long as most people in the area can remember. Currently, there are plans to demolish the building to make way for a new ASDA supermarket, should ASDA win the bidding war currently taking place to develop Coalville’s next supermarket. Strangely, the Mitchell Grieves website is still live, and details relating to this factory are also published on this website…but nobody has worked there for years. All of the equipment, machinery and people’s general belongings still seem to be inside. I t will be very upsetting if all of this equipment is simply disposed of once the new development begins.

    I seldom leave a response, but i did some searching and wound up here Mitchell Grieves, Coalville « Isabella Pepper.
    And I actually do have 2 questions for you if you do not
    mind. Is it only me or does it look like some of the remarks appear like they are written by brain dead visitors?
    😛 And, if you are posting at other social sites, I would like to keep up
    with anything new you have to post. Could you make a list of all of all
    your communal pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
