    I know what you're thinking, 'oh god another report when will they end' but I can promise you this is my last report for a while! I'll let the industrial forum rest for a bit now I think as I have put quite a few up...but I need to clear this backlog.

    A day or so after I got back from the roadtrip I was invited out with Landie Man and one site we managed to crack which is almost on my doorstep was this - I can't believe I'd never done it before, I'd known about it but always assumed due to the lack of reports for a couple of years it was sealed or demolished but me and Landie rocked up, and had a brilliant time! The place is massive, way bigger than it looks from the outside and a maze inside of factory floors, corridors, mishmashed additions built into bigger rooms and other 'improvements'.

    A bit of history first (thanks Wiki)

    It's a weird mix of serious chav damage and lovely natural decay, some rooms are full of things and others are largely empty, and it reminded me of the Ford Foundry in that a large amount of it has been ripped out and left in the actual factory although it doesn't appear a lot has changed since the last reports around 2009. The highlights had to be the store room full of acetate slides and the 2 massive secure storage rooms which although empty were properly cavernous spaces.

    The second enormous store room, this photo doesn't do justice just how massive the space is...

    We spent ages searching for the boiler house and finally found it nestled right next to security's hut.

    All in all, the biggest urbex surprise of the year for me.
