    The explore:

    Visited with K1N5M4N and ZombieFart on a freezing January morning after I managed to get the wrong meeting spot - of the two same road names on my satnav I managed to chose the wrong one!

    Anyway, after a bit of a walk and wet feet from a comical log in puddle circus trick, we were on the site and trying to find our entrance. After a bit of mooch we found our way in having scared the pigeons away. I am amazed this place is still as complete as it is having been closed for a while now. Very little graff too, although the half arsed attempt of a security dummy / scarecrow had been overcome - someone had knocked him off his perch.

    A bit of history (which I'm sure is familiar to most on here):

    This place sits on a rich deposit of high-quality Weald Clay and when it was found by some intrepid explorer (!) it was shamelessly exploited by the Clock House Brick Company which was founded around 1933. After a few hiccups during and following the war (something about lack of man power - who'd have thought it) the company was sold to the London Brick Company and in 1984 it was acquired by Hanson. The site was again at the wrong end of things when the bottom fell out of the construction market in about 2008 since when its been left idle.

    With a bit of spit and polish and a good sweep up it looks like it could be up and running again. But then again what do I know!

    Anyway on with the pics:
