    From the outside (And pretty much inside too) this is the most undesirable place I have explored. The factory is trashed, full of Asbestos, radiation and grafitti. But it was easy to do and it ticks another place off the list.

    Visited with Hamtagger, Session9 and Catbalou

    History Lesson​


    On with the pictures :)

    This was quite off-putting

    I have no idea where these lead to, just that it was flooded. And I didn't fancy getting wet.

    Someone clearly needed some new light bulbs

    This must have taken a while to do

    Just a stapler

    This worker had a softcore porn cupboard door. Horny bastard :wanker

    I'm guessing this guy was pretty "Norty" in School, he seemed to have failed his English tests.

    Not the trongest of floors, I could feel it dipping beneath my feet.

    Thanks for taking time to read my report. This factory was pretty boring, every room looked the same but the history behind it is interesting.

    Lol... I think your captions to the photos are the best part!
    It was rather a dire place... you have actually made it look less grim than it was!.. which is quite an achievement considering!
    I think i spent a lot of time sitting on the roof watching the cricket players in the field across the road :)

    Superb pictures mate. What a shame the site is trashed. It makes so mad that a piece of world history - a place which has propelled the world forward in technology to such an amazing extent, has been left like this. In any other country, especially in places like France and the US, places like this are museums. Why is the UK so ashamed of it's contributions to the world?

    I like that place, more graffs on the walls to brighten it up . It's a shame its ended up in such a state. The Radiation signage is interesting, though a major off put. Looks like a silo in one of your images with the red hand rails on it. A good record of what is there.
