    Visited with BillAnd, FlyingMonkeyCorps and Bugsuperstar.

    First proper big explore for me, but thankfully the boys were gentle with me and I won't be sore for too long. Apparently British Extracting Co used to crush oilseed, extract the oil and feed the remainder to cattle, and has been derelict since the 70s.

    To ease us in gently we started with the warehouses where the lack of roof...

    ...means that the floors can only be described as deeply warped

    The site has been fairly well "loved" by the local populus who've helpfully decorated it:

    Some original safety features are still in place:

    After a little wander around, we headed for the main attraction and the roof of British Extracting:

    Others can better describe the joy that is the massive steel caged ladder (and the distinctly less secure wooden ladder at the top) but suffice to say it's an experience! Having reached the top of the ladder, some of the original machinery is still there (ish):

    Those holes in the floor go a long (long long) way down, certainly not one to fall into! So up to the top:

    A quick change of flags from BillAnd:

    A little look at the stairs "of death":

    And finally a bit of a show from the Red Arrows, possibly in our honour:

    Thanks again to the guys, great fun explore.
