    It seems this is becoming the High Royds of the North :D
    Loads of visitors lately! Hopefully it won't get spoiled for others through careless exploring though :(

    Visited with Bryag on our wee trek, cheers for chauffeuring duties :thumb

    This is an excellent site, mint as you like, big thanks to Alir147 for the heads up!

    I'll not bother with the history, it's been done better by others, suffice to say it's a Victorian Distillery, mothballed since 1998 I believe.

    Some of my pics, I'll try and avoid too many duplicates of other posts...

    The sunlight streaming in helped, such a photogenic place, didn't really do it justice, Bryag''ll put that right :thumb
    An absolutely sweet explore this one, loved every minute of it!

    Very Nice pics, Zimbob. You seem to be getting to grips with your Fuji Nicely!:thumb
    This was our second visit, the first being aborted due to snow (only a couple of weeks ago) as we decided that our snowy footprints would alert security to the access point, and ruin it for others. Access to the actual site was inhibited by a local budding "Percy Thrower", but a bit of legwork soon allowed unobstructed access to the site:cool:

    Here are a few of mine from our day-trip out east!

    A couple of externals

    Goods in or out, not quite sure?
    [​IMG]

    First light inside (I loved the colours and shadows here)
    [​IMG]

    Bottom of the mash room (I think?)
    [​IMG]

    Below the stills
    [​IMG]

    Looking up
    [​IMG]

    Wheels and dials
    [​IMG]

    Buttons! the temptation was great
    [​IMG]

    The low sun made for some good shots, but also made some shots difficult
    [​IMG]

    The "olde worlde" stuff in here was great, all the wood and cast iron!
    [​IMG]

    The stills

    Needing a bloody good polish. Unfortunately , I left my tin of industrial strength Brasso in the car. DOH!
    [​IMG]

    Top floor of the mash barrels, nearly lost my shades in one of them!
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Please note the small pile of rubble in the canteen/toilets doorway. That fell on Zimbob upon our exit!
    [​IMG]

    More wood stuff, it was great!
    [​IMG]

    All I could think of here was the robots from the old "Smash" commercials!
    [​IMG]

    Lots of switches. We refrained!
    [​IMG]

    Complicated thingy
    [​IMG]

    Pipes and dials

    "They eat them with their metal forks, ha ha ha ha......"
    [​IMG]

    I think the fumes were getting to me
    [​IMG]

    I called it Dennis (hopper? I know, I know, bad joke)
    [​IMG]

    They call it paraflow, I don't know it's purpose, but the massive ratchet handle was soooo tempting!
    [​IMG]

    I told Zimbob to dress for stealth! He was clearly on the understanding we were exploring in custard!
