    I thought that this was a closed down pub but there is no record of it being so! From my own observations, it looks like it was some kind of print shop for signs and big sticky labels! So - apologies for finding no info, I did my best!
    I've had my eye on this place for a while, I did plan a trip with others but they wussed out because of the rain and workload. Ha ha! So I decided to go in alone with many fears of how strong the floor was. It turned out to be concrete so all was well - until I entered! It was like a scene from the birds, disgruntled pigeons swooped in a narrow stairway and I had to duck for cover. wearing a mask was also a good move because it was pretty rank in there. Getting out with no fresh pigeon poop on myself was nothing short of a miracle.
    So - on with the pictures!
