    Explored with Turkey. We were just passing and decided to take a look, as you do.

    The history. Well, it's been covered a few times on here but not with this name.

    Bengers were bought by Fisons, who were bought by Rhone-Poulenc who became Sanofi-Aventi and finally Sanofi. There is nothing left of the recent buildings and plant, and only the original Bengers building remains.

    This is what it used to look like...

    Only the front building remains, and this is what they have planned for it...

    There isn't much to see here. It's very stripped out and as noted in previous reports, the only thing really worth seeing is the dome.

    Since Will Knots report a few months ago, the front wall has been destroyed to get at the electrical cable. here;s a picture from July...

    The rear of the building...

    The bottom of the main stairs...

    And finally some shots of the dome...
