    After , all the security shenanigans, Tcake and i went for a mooch
    started on the island and hung out for an hour and a half providing decoy mission for Horus and Forsaken. Bust by our friend "German shepard" and his trusty owner as we where about to cross the bridge. But we will be back !!

    Historys ( Borrowed)
    Located on a 175 acre site in Castleford, England, Hickson & Welch was an organic fine chemicals producer and contract manufacturer focused on agrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, pigments, explosives and detergents. During the 90's a huge explosion killed 5 workers and this contributed to the eventual demise of the site. The works were sold in 2003 to a Private equity company who promised to keep the plant open and assured unions there would be no job losses. As soon as the contract was signed they sacked all 300 employes, asset stripped the company and sold the site to a developer. Demolition began but ground to a halt last year because of planning difficulties.
