Derelict factory
Derelict factory
This is a graphic illustration of industrial decline in South Essex, now the area destined to become the Thames Gateway. The BATA factory made shoes for decades and employed hundreds of people. It was part of a shoe-making empire that started in Czechoslovakia and eventually led to a chain of shops throughout the UK. The factory closed - and the jobs went with it. Now the area is waiting for the promised re-generation.
