    So after having a good scout about one evening last week I strolled back up to the main building Corah with two soon to be members on a nice sunny morning (For now known as Eden and CheshireCat) only to find my usual way in welded over and my second route in guarded by secca :( Sad Puppy!

    So instead we went for a good wonder around the old boiler house and the remaining chimney stacks which tbf in the weather was really nice

    So here is a bit of stolen history (Ref: Wiki 2014)

    N. Corah and Sons was a manufacturer of hosiery and textiles, located in Leicester in the United Kingdom. At one time it was the largest knitwear producer in Europe, and its products had a major influence on the development and prosperity of the Marks & Spencer chain of retail store

    In April 2012, the Corah building (no longer in use by Corah) suffered a fire

    Now for the good bit!

    Signage is good

    This amused me no end (you may notice I like signs!)

    Don't see this being much use anymore!

    Unless I fell down one of these (yes that nearly happened)

    I also nearly went derriere over Brassiere on the three inchs of pigeon 'Merde' on these bad boys

    [​IMG]



    Place had pretty much been gutted

    [​IMG]



    However there were a few remainders of what the place was once like

    Lastly, this amused us all a little bit, sadly as we stood to have a group shot with it someone turned up and started doing circles in a pick up truck so we casually took the hint to leave went for a cuppa and cake :D

    Hope this isn't too picture heavy, there are a few more on here

    Some different bits to the usual pics, not many people look at the boiler house. There's no secca there though!

    No idea who the van bloke was bit he kept driving around and pausing in places, did have Eden and Chesh laughing and looking forlorn when I smiled and spoke to the guys who asked us if we were looking for him ('nahh mate,, just wanted to take a picture of the chimneys!')

    Thanks for the feedback guys :)
