    Reposted - as this was part two of a joint report - but that explorers pics are long gone (as, indeed, has British Cellophane, sadly :rolleyes:)

    Probably the best of the best of the Southwest this one.

    A great way to start the New Year, in the company of Urbanity Steve-o, and of course Dennis - who was a really nice bloke, who did his job, without being a 'jobsworth' (Hi Dennis if your reading this)

    We mainly took in the cellophane production plant, a six story building that produced the material on the upper floors, before feeding it down to the ground floor, where it was wound onto huge rolls, and stored before being moved elsewhere in the plant to cut, and package.

    Any way - some pics:

    Starting at the top:

    Reached via six flights of rusty stairs:

    Home to most of the pigeons in Somerset, although this one didn't give me too much trouble

    The upper floors house the cellophane production plant:

    And from there, back to the ground floor, where the film was wound onto huge rolls:

    Steel rolls sit waiting for the next batch of film:

    Who needs a fish-eye, when you have safety mirrors?

    The whole of the ground floor was served by a series of overhead cranes to allow the rolls of film to be moved through to the storage areas:

    Cheers for a top afternoon!
