    Site 3 in the 'state of decay", "three county tour". Having seen a report on here, firstly massive kudos points to the guys who discovered this one, especially the condition.

    Secondary, we were looking forward to seeing it, the photos looked mint...

    History>

    The Stevenson Road site began making gas lamps more than a century ago and became a roll maker about 95 years ago. It was known as the Davy Roll company but, after going into receivership, was reborn as Castmaster Roll in the mid-2000s, taken over by new owner Mel Farrar.

    The business went into administration in October and as no new buyer could be found, all 78 workers have lost their jobs and the firm’s assets are being sold.The firm had reported a trading loss for three years in a row before going into administration, including a £400,000 loss for the year ending January 31, 2014. Details included in the papers of administrator KPMG show £502,353 was owed to different companies at the time of administration. The report said delayed and non-payment of invoices had put the company under ‘significant pressure from its creditors’ in the months prior to administration.

    Meet Vince, the urban fox, perhaps the most vital member of "state of decay"...

    the next day the three counties tour would leave yorks, to another RAF site of another kind...

    Me and The Amateur Wanderer had a casual stroll around there along with a shit and a shower and even re visited a few hours later to collect my wallet I cleverly left behind!
