    The Explore.........

    The first of our three explore locations in Warrington, on a busy day out and early morning meet 10.00am :confused

    Visited with Acid, Telf and Urblex. Thanks for the day boys :D


    A Bit of History......

    Garnetts, a well respected firm of cabinet makers in Warrington.

    Robert Garnett was born on the 6th June 1830 in Penketh, Warrington, died on 9th Apr 1903 at Hall Nook, Penketh and was buried in Sankey. He married Mary James on 15th Sep 1859 in Stanwix, Carlisle and they had one daughter.

    Garnett's was a well respected firm of cabinet makers and he was a generous local benefactor to many churches. He laid the foundation stone at Penketh Methodist Church. The workshop is a familiar landmark on the Warrington skyline with its Italianate crenellated water tower, which indeed does state Founded 1824, Built 1906 actually set in stone on the Tower. The building is still completely intact although disused.

    On with the pics..........:)
