taken 2 years ago, near to Totnes, Devon, Great Britain

Former bacon factory building, Totnes
Former bacon factory building, Totnes
When I first moved to South Devon, Harris' bacon factory dominated this part of Totnes. Most of the site is now occupied by Morrisons and its car park but this mid-C19 building, "probably a canal warehouse" LinkExternal link (but now an estate agents) remains beside the leat for the neighbouring mill, also part of the factory.

An email from a former employee at Harris' tells me that he understood this building had been a rope factory.
