    History:

    Established as a fuller's earth and refractory clay works in the early 20th century, this site was chosen in 1937 by the Steetley Chemical Company as a site for a large part of its chemical manufacturing operations. The chemical factory closed in 1989 and a brickworks was established just to the west of it in 1990. This in turn closed in c.2004 and the yard was used to store bricks from other factories in the area. The site is now largely abandoned and is heavily contaminated with hazardous chemicals.

    Visited over the weekend with a non-member. There's quite a few bits to explore though on the whole it's very messed u.

    I took these pics on my phone...I don't 'do' photography, I just like being nosy :)

    The green pond looks inviting for a swim on a warm day. :-(
    The graff is new and rather good. Cool pics for a phone.
