    Hi Folks

    First post on 28dayslater

    I have been looking at the site for a couple of weeks and have started exploring. Even though I have probably been doing this since I was a kid. I always have had an inquisitive side

    On sat I went to check out Tone dale Mill and Tone Works (Fox Brothers & Co.).
    Weather was filthy so this was just a mooch to work out a plan to get in. Tonedale mill, whilst secured looked the easier of the two to get in, as there didn't appear to be any security present. Tone works on the other-hand, had its gates open with 2 cars present and what appeared to be a security booth. I understand that they have dogs present. So I plan to have a look on a Sunday to see if the security are there on Sundays. although I could see a way in at the end of the site so when the weather is better I will give it ago.

    Today I went and checked out East Weares rifle range on Portland Dorset. Again the weather was awful and given that I had stayed up late to watch the live feed of Lemmys funeral with way too much JD being drunk I didn't have the inclination to check out all the structures

    Anyway I have a few more local sites to explore so look forward to reporting on these

    All the best

    Thanks man

    I am doing a lot of research on possible new sites in Somerset. I used to be a professional archaeologist and was always interested in industrial archaeology

    Cheers

    Welcome. If you don't mind travelling to Bristol we usually have meet or two a year. Keep an eye out in the general section.
