ditchingham maltings | there but for the grace of god

These rooms weren’t connected to the rest of the buildings so we ventured outside, momentarily blinded by the overcast day.

We took the bridge which lead across the stream to the silk mill. Whilst the two building complexes were completely different, they were linked by means of various bridges, pipes and cables, so both sites were connected in some way.

The squat building pictured housed a generator (hence the ventilation tower) and took the incoming feed from the local substation. Whilst many of the fuse boxes were either smashed or removed, I remember being impressed by the amount of power the site required. (But this was my pre-Pyestock days so I guess I wouldn't be so impressed now).
