    The last time i had visited the site in 2009 it was already in decline. The buildings used by landon engineering being the only visable signs of life, the office at the front of the site was empty and near by buildings were boarded up.Time for a brief history of the site, that started life back in 1875.

    The castle works became part of the large English Electric presence in the county.which in turn was to become part of GEC.
    But after closure it was an industrial estate used by Stafford college, landon engineering (moved out 2009)and other smaller firms.Now the site is sitting empty and awaiting demolition for a planned housing development.

    Really disappointed they demolished this before I got to explore!
    Would have made a great location for a short film. What a waste of a great building. Now just lying flat and rubble-less.
