    Explored with @AuntieKnickers, @Miss Mayhem, @The Shepshed Diamondback and @The Stig.

    History
    Explore

    With Stig and AK coming down for a piss-up, it was only right that we have a cheeky explore. After a brief discussion, we all agreed on Hardy & Hansons. With the fact that I know idea if it was still derelict, I was fearful of a repeat of our meet up in Birmingham with a success rate of 1/7ish. After a few navigational errors and missed turn-offs, we arrived 45 late(sorry guys). Luckily that was enough time for Stig to have a quick scout. One part of the site is now a contruction site, unfortunately it takes up the bridge. It was a good explore and it wasn’t as trashed as I was expecting. Great place to see with some nice graff and paint peel.

    Great report.

    Did you do the maltings or the offices? They're the best bits!

    My father was Chief Engineer for 32 years at this brewery, so sad to see it in such a state of disrepair. In his day it was spotless
