    Living in Lichfield and knowing this site, I wonder if anyone has had the chance to get in, it looks like the pikies have been in, would love to see some photos.

    Just be careful as there used to be deep pits where the press units used to sit. Big site defo worth a look.

    Just not been able to pluck up the courage.

    Had a brief, brief look around and it says there are cctv cameras but they are all turned away from looking outside. Most the windows are smashed looking from the outside, but I didn't bother going inside due to time constraints.

    Checked this the other day, very secure. Having briefly worked here it was strange to see the place so utterly devoid of life.

    Did you work there briefly? and run a hairdressing salon nearby?
    I started on a government scheme there and ended up in the powder shop unfortunately.
    Was your father maintenance manager?
    I worked with ken hamer and remember his son worked there too

    Beenz, thats quite correct on all counts.

    Terry Hamer, sadly Ken passed away from a sudden heart attack a few years ago.

    Beenz,

    Yes, that's me!

    My Dad was yes, sadly passed away 6 years ago, personally I think the dust at that site caused his illness, Ken Hamer also died a few years ago from an unexpected heart attack. Haven't spoken to Terry in years but hes still kicking around.

    that's from when we went, trying to keep it a secret but you already know, it's a private link by the way and it is great inside, you're a bit visible on the way in though

    Why? Given that half of the bloody roof has been stolen I think it's safe to assume that Lord and Lady Pike are already aware.
