    The Visit
    Having tried this place in the past and not finding any access we heard that a friend had been in recently so set off to try again and luck was on our side :)
    The first few floors have you thinking its just another empty building but then you walk into the old office rooms!!!!!

    The History
    The Excelsior Printing and Bookbinding Works was originally opened on the Monday 4th July 1870 and the owner at the time was Mr John Heywood.
    At the time when it was opened this place could take on upto 750 employees and was one of the largest of it kind. Clare Tooling Systems occupied the building around the late 80's early 90's.

    I liked it in here, lots of very old stuff. Cat thought it was a fetid pit so I had to leave sooner than I would have liked!
