    This was a visit to a local factory, in Coseley -West Midlands, that I have passed many times but only recently ventured inside.
    I know it used to be an Iron Works of some kind but will need to research it a lot more to discover a full history.

    Access was fairly straightforward, a step over a damaged barbed wire fence and then a small scramble through a dislodged corrugated steel panel into the factory itself.
    Inside everything has been stripped apart from some extraction piping, a couple of large cylinders and a few electrical control panels. From the factory perspective perhaps the crane was the most interesting, which was still almost intact and the paintwork in surprisingly good condition. However, the most interesting and exciting part of the visit for me was the graffiti. This place is obviously used by local kids but some of the artwork inside was astounding. For me, seeing these pieces was more than worth the visit that yielded little else apart from a great sense of degredation.
    I hope to find out more about the history of this place, but would recommend a quick visit to see some of the graffiti.

    Hopefully someone will know what the place is for the history although i"d suggest it"d be better in "Other reports"as there"s very little little to see TBH and a few of the pics are OOF as well as the fact the Graff"s Naff..

    Pity you didn"t climb the Crane as it looks the only thing worth shooting in there......also we don"t do access details on a public forum even to this place ;)

    Hopefully your next visit will be more productive. Have a search around using the Search Box

    Fair enough. Are you able to shift the post to 'other'?
    Tried to upload more photos but recieved an error saying 'bandwidth for thread exceeded'.
    I will disagree with you on the graffiti though.
    Thanks for the advice, just starting out tbh.

    Bandwidth is your end issue not the Forum unless you exceed the image size which these are not. Sometimes less is more . You could delete the OOF ones and add in some better composed ones if you have them ?

    I"m used to Sheffield Graffiti so you could say i"m spoilt for epic Graff

    Is this at the end of Darkhouse Lane? Possibly Coseley Ironworks later known as Joseph and Thomas Turley?

    I just wanted to say thanks to the original poster for mentioning this place. I visited it myself last weekend and managed to take a few photos whilst there. It was my first 'urban exploration' and after experiencing the atmosphere of such a place I definitely want to visit other sites.

    If anyone is interested you can see the photos on Flikr here or on my Instagram here.

    @nookiedog why don't you post a report yourself, rather than just pointing people towards your flickr page?

    I didn't know if that was the 'done thing' if someone had already posted about a particular site?

    No reason why you can't post your take on the place, different people have different 'eyes' for things, it's often surprising how people see things in the same place differently.

    Thanks, I'll find out which area of the forum to post it in and sort out a new post.

    Yes that's the one. I'm not sure about Joseph & Thomas turley but the building has "cannon 1827" on the building.
