Clark's Village - outlet shopping centre
Clark's, the famous shoe makers, ceased production in Street in 1993, although offices and a distribution centre remain on site. Parts of the works were redeveloped to form what is surely a lucrative shopping village. The round brick chimney is part of the original factory and there is a 1910 steam engine still within the works - ST4836 : Steam engine, C & J Clark, Street. There used to be two enclosed Belliss & Morcom steam engines but they were removed by private collectors. A wooden building housed Brush diesels but I don't know what has become of it.

I was hoping to walk around the perimeter and get meaningful industrial shots but the shopping got in the way!
