And I have to say the old industrial complex down on Warwick Road South had little to commend it as an example of industrial heritage.
Andy who took the pictures linked the building to “Thomas Goldsworthy founder of Emery Mill who had been born 1798 Redruth, Cornwall.
The business was taken over by his son Robert who was born 1833.
I doubt that the building will be missed and their epitaph might well be that they had “seen better days and done better things.”*
Having said that someone may well come forward with an interesting story or an equally interesting person who was linked to the place.
But for now all that can be said is that they have gone, and the gaping space is just awaiting the ground to be broken by the builders who in a matter of months will have developed the area leaving nothing but Andy’s pictures and a few records to show what was once here.
