 Overview
 Description
I first saw this site from the train, going to work. The entire area is riddled with knitting, weaving, etc factories. Most are brand new, hi-tech and under constant CCTV surveillance. This one looked abandoned.

It isn't, and thus my scouting visit failed to proceed further that just going around the buildings, trying to look inconspicuous, and shooting photos.

The area is used as a parking lot by the locals, and every side of the building was exposed to apartment blocks. I think any visit to this place will have to take place at night.

Part of the factory floor is still in use, though I'm unsure what it's used for. I heard voices inside, but there wasn't very much machinery noise.

There are welded doors, bricked up entrances, and collapsed wings. I recommend taking care.

     History
    I have absolutely no clue. Even 'textile factory' is guesswork, based on the fact that the area has dozens of industrial complexes, and all seem to have something to do with textiles.
