Leather Works Gilt Brook, Giltbrook

Women workers outside factory Some of the original features can still be seen, at one point Giltbrook's brook runs through the old brick tunnel which fed the works with water. This is overgrown, but can be seen clearly in winter when the vegetation has died off. Many of the leather scraps and offcuts remain on the ground at what would have been the rear of the works.
