    History....well not much that i can find online & going off the other reports from various forums

    Hargraves Meat processing facility has occupied this site since the 1940"s right through until 2001 when it closed following the Foot & mouth epedemic er ..........:confused:

    Solo mooch on way way up to Northumberland for a holiday via Derp Cities, i past this place & thought it"d be rude not to call in. It"s well F@cked too say the least but going off old reports i"ve looked at today, nothing much has actually changed it seems. It"s basically trashed wall to wall & roofs as well, helped along the way with numerous fires. It"s very sketchy in places obviously, made more so when i was there by some angry faced Metal Fairies (without a transit van ironically) wandering about the place collecting their necter ;) There"s so much loose metal & broken glass around it"s bloody hard to be stealthy, & looking at what steels left my camera etc would certainly make them more money for less work. Anyway i managed to get my pics without incident until i went arse over tit outside the old substation at the rear & they popped up and headed my way, cue GTFO

    Most of the building is not worth many a pic, same old same, trashed offices (although the views from some of the window frames look interesting....well looking past Middlesborough anyway :) trashed floor areas all over the lower sections until you come into the concrete stalls for the animals awaiting slaughter & you remember what went on here. Which is the only parts of interest TBH. And as i"ve never been inside an Abbatoir, there"s some right scary looking processing machines, & some more suited to ripping trees down at the roadside than i would have thought would be involved in meat production (i suppose i ought to Youtube it really) these also seem not to have changed from previous reports which is weird as it seems to be one of the few things not weighed in.....yet.

    Anyway babble over :thumb

    Yeah mate most of the pics are lit up, the warehouse bits & the processing end was in the dark, just ironic it was a sunny day and reflecting off the white walls through the smashed off doors etc...everything you don"t need. i prefer total darkness TBH more balanced

    Steady on or these reports will start to become a habit :)

    Actually looks far more trashed than went I visited a few years ago... the machinery is still worth seeing though imo.
