    Came to this wonderfull site over two visits. The the second time right after an emergency standby shift. An "all nighter", well that's what I'm booking anyway.;) It was great watching the sunrise and varying lightplay coming through the windows of the workshops, onto the array of machinery. The guys who worked here certainly loved their nudey calenders. Loads of jazz mags littered around and 70s (hairy)porn playing cards scattered about.
    As I say this was my second visit. I wanted to come back and have a play with a 24mm prime I just treated myself to. Except I suffered an epic resolution fail. The night before I took some shots for an ebay sale. I'd selected the lowest res on my camera 720x480 and forgot to switch it back FFS so apologies for the varying quality of the shots. Although upscaling them to 1024x638 with a smidge of sharpening didn't make them turn out as bad as I thought.




    Looks like Magneto had a go at these gates since Speed's visit.

    Cheers chap. Loving your euro stuff on flickr at the momment. Keep it coming.

    I keep on looking but my 22 month old has restricted the flow. Not that I'm complaining.

    Definately. I'm not 100% but I think theres a few more buildings on the same grounds that might be worth a look.

    Excellent little group of buildings, shame about your res fail doesn't seem to have made too much of a difference though.

    Nice site that. I hate to see good tooling and equipment go to waste tho, such a shame when someone could be putting it to good use.
