    Found it difficult to find a lot of history on this place. The labs were involved with Soil sciences and research I believe, as there's lots of samples etc. in some of the labs. very hard to work out precisely when it closed, but I think previous reports say around 2005, although areas of it are looking like they've been empty a lot longer than this.

    Visited with Obscurity and Swamp_donkey, as it's not too far down the road and we all happened to be free, we thought we'd give it a look. It was a lot better than expected, and made for a nice laid back explore for a Saturday afternoon. :thumb

    Oh come on, really? Google DEFRA labs Kent and within 2 clicks of the mouse you'll find it, seriously!!!

    It's in a much worse state these days, power is all off, parts of it are very trashed now.

    trashed or decayed? I had a look a year or so back on the way back from another place but didn't go in cos it was getting dark. I was kinda hoping it would be quietly decaying/maturing. But is it vandalised now?

    More Pikied with a bit of vandalism/junkiieism at the front. Most of them don't fancy the slime at the back I suppose!
