    We hit J Heaths first and after seeing how bad it was decided to do a bit of ninja and get into the warehouse next door via an adjoining roof section.

    Both buildings were in pretty bad shape, but it made for a gentle explore, with no drama - just what i needed as i seriously lacked kip after working nights the night before.

    At one point this would have been one of the many pen factories that existed in Birmingham, 75% of all written word was with a pen made in one of the Birmingham factories. This one being John Heath's which became known as Kingfield Heath at some point in the 80's who were manufacturers of stationary equipment. The remaining paperwork we found ends at 2001 so this would be when the factory closed I presume. Time hasn't been good to this place as all of the glass ceiling in the main factory floor has all come down and smashed. And there was not a pen or any stationary in sight. (from sammydoublewhammy's report ).

    Onto the warehouse Cash N Carry next door.

    Thanks for looking
