    This site closed in 1993 with the loss of over 200 jobs and is one of two currently derelict former Dairy Crest sites in Devon. Part of the site is currently in use (hence the lack of external shots) and the remainder was sold to developers in July this year, although all the previous attempts to do something with the site don't exactly bode well for the current owners! The building is in a dangerous state of disrepair and there really is very little left.
    The site has really been done to death but here is my little bit. New camera (which I despise),failing light and computer monitor which is having issues with gamma and colour are my excuses for the pictures that are left, anyway enough excuses....

    This was the most interesting thing of the whole site. 3d graffiti made with paper, very nice!

    Nothing wrong with your photos; one is slightly blurry to my eye, but it happens unfortunately. Did you use a tripod? Even when I use one I still sometimes manage to knock it slightly lol.

    Nice one. I've been meaning to go back to try and get on the roof of the drying tower, there's graffiti up there so it can be done..

    There is no access as the ladder was cut after a suicide I believe.
