This factory was used to make pharmaceutical drugs to treat respiratory conditions in humans. Sadly it closed down many years ago but did move on to new premises next door. Although most of this site has already been demolished, this last remaining part of the property will also be lost forever as planning permission has the green light for housing & shops.
Now this is a house with a dark history. 15 years ago Eric Marsden and some friends played with a Ouija board in the small dining room at the back. As the story goes, things went a little off key and a spirit was released and a haunting ensued. After 20 months of spirit activity the owner left and moved in with his mother. Confused on what he should to do with the property he was mysteriously found bereft of life on the porch when he went back to check on the house. It was started to be renovated years later, but due to strange goings on to this day it was abandonded. Security wasn’t an option and so a vehicle was left outside the property to maintain the idea it was occupied.
This is a lovely little find in and about Derby and all we had to go on was that the farmer’s wife died and 5 years later, closed down the farm, closed up the house and as he still retains ownership he does rent the barns out from time to time for storage.
