    Explored with TBM, Landie Man, Treadstone and a non-member...

    After checking out a dud lead in Leamington Spa we headed back to the very inviting looking boarded up factory we had passed and done a drive-by of earlier in the day, nothing seemed to be going on on-site so we decided after lunch in McDonalds across the road to give it a go. Looking at previous reports it seems we missed the 'epic' boat on this one by about 3 years but despite how stripped it was internally the decay inside is lovely, and it's a proper gritty, oily piece of derelict industry. We only got around about half the site before having to call it a day so a return is very definitely on the cards.

    I can't find a lot of history about this specific plant but it opened in 1940 and closed in July 2007, and produced castings including brake drums and discs.

    Few random externals...
