    Another of my new Leicester finds, it was the work's interesting water tower that made me swing the motor round. I climbed the tower and was questioned by a fella who was bewildered as to why I had gone up the "crumbling" ladder! After some explanation, the fella decided I "would do old Dibnah proud" and let me in the works that is being stripped for conversion to industrial units.
    Some very interesting features remain. This place is huge, and I only saw a fraction of whats there. The labs were quite intact and very interesting, and one part was similar to GKN's Atlas house, as it was the managers domain and very lavish!
