Walton Mill, Chesterfield

Recording the now derelict Robinson’s Walton Mill Factory in Chesterfield ahead of the site’s redevelopment. This huge site once manufactured cotton wool for a range of medical and household uses. Sketches will be used as source material for finished works to be exhibited as part of a social history exhibition at Chesterfield Museum. [Date yet to be confirmed]. The Robinson family business continues but is no longer based in Chesterfield where, across several sites, the company once employed over 3000 people.
