    Visited with Ali23 and Stealth. I really enjoyed this place (apart from the overpowering smell of pigeon crap and rat piss) the whole place was in mint condition with nearly all the machinery still in place (an the power still on!), and of course the air raid shelter - what a great find that turned out to be - thanks stealth anyway -Here are my pictures of the day:

    Ah yes that nice little air raid shelter...

    I was surprised to see so much still intact

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Never seen anywhere that has still got the original curtain straps like this

    [​IMG]

    The blocked off end, which would have come up into the office building

    The main room

    cheers stealth again for knowing about the air raid shelter, as that for me was the highlight of the day.

    Afaik the mill closed completely in 2005, apparently sold but still has for sale sign up, go figure?

    Anyway here's a selection of my pics from this great explore, so much to see in there and the shelter beneath it was a real bonus :)

    Here's a few more inc. the underground shelter.

    Only about 4 machines left in this room you can see the empty spaces

    [​IMG]

    One of the relatively intact ones, don't ask me what they are

    [​IMG]

    Eye wash cabinet and poster, eye wash is still in date :eek:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Nice to see the extinguishers full and tags in place

    [​IMG]

    One hell of a tap

    [​IMG]

    Looking down into the shelter

    [​IMG]

    Main room

    [​IMG]

    Nik24 checks out the other (blocked off) entrance

    [​IMG]

    Random lightbulb still whole!

    [​IMG]

    Original strap to hold the gas curtain, as Nik said never seen one of these in any shelter and the woodwork is still in very good nick bar a little mould
