    You're probably all sick of pics of this place, so sorry about that.I won't rehash the history from the other reports here. I planned to go elsewhere but the mrs wanted to go shopping in Leamington so...

    Walking to the site I found the easiest of entrances. Slipped through, over and through a load of mud and bushes, and then "Oh, I didn't know they had a stretch of railway for the factory... Cool."

    It turns out no, no they didn't. Wrong side of the tracks. I turned around and went to find another way in.

    The first building I entered seemed to be split into three large parts. Unknown to myself, there were workmen on site in the furthest of these three chunks. I carried on as normal, having a look around...

    The second area ran parrallel to the first...

    At this point I header upstairs, it's all changing rooms, showers and toilets here - not very interesting.

    So back down and through into what I thought was a little side room, but no it's another large warehouse space with *gasp* interesting stuff!

    Ok, side rooms etc exhausted it's back to the second large warehouse. Was that someone talking? Oh shit.

    I dived into a room behind me (fortuitously finding more cool stuff in doing so) to hide...

    Whoever they were, they weren't going away. I packed up my gear and walked as quietly and slowly back the way I had come. No pics for a while now, I didn't want my camera and tripod in my hand while trying to make a quick yet subtle escape.

    After nearly walking round the corner into them (twice) I got out and into a second building. It turned out to be the offices and canteen building. Interesting but not what I came to see.

    Mooching over to the other side of the site, I ventured onto the office building roof and snapped the tower quickly to make sure I had a pic, then turned to go and... Wait, a lady walking her dog? Really? A quick wave to her since she'd seen me anyway, and climb back down.

    I had fun climbing all the gangways and so on around the main warehouse (with all the water on the floor from the other reports) but couldn't go in myself because there were 5-6 people inside. I finally took my camera out again on the gangways and ladders around the main chimney.

    I had climbed 10-15 rungs before logic kicked in. I'm here on my own, if I fuck up and fall who would know? Back down I go.

    Still, I'm more or less leaving now, might as well take some final shots as I leave...

    And one final peek through a window into the forbidden warehouse...

    A fun explore, but if I go back it'll be a Sunday and not solo. Hopefully on a nice day to climb that chimney! I'm not too far from here, so let me know if you're planning it and I might join you.
