    I'm a real fan of graffiti and this place was rammed full of it.
    Wrecked and stripped and generally abused to death, this place remains surprisingly photogenic and I found it hard choosing the best of my photos.
    Interesting room/flat on first floor - sadly burnt out, but given the read below, this was intriguing.
    Very relaxed way to spend a few hours.

    Loads more on my site (but a lot are HDR for those who aren't that keen!)

    This factory was built in 1937 to the designs of Wallis Gilbert and partners for Richard Klinger Ltd. The Klinger company was founded in Austria in 1893 and made gaskets for engines and hydraulic pipelines and also water level gauges and valves. This building was built in the latest Modern style of architecture. The building originally had water tanks at the top of the central tower. There was a second floor company flat intended for visiting Austrian executives, offices on the first floor, cutting shop and tool room on the ground floor and storage for rubber, asbestos, chemicals and consumable items in the basement. Read official list description.

    Cheers.
    may have put the sats up a little in a few of them, along with contrast and sharpen. But the bright sunlight on that paint was exceedingly bright.
    If you can stomach it, you can see the hdr version on my site :0)

    You've captured the explosion of colours very well. Certainly different from many of the other reports on this place.

    'Euro' sure is an egotist, isn't he? How did you capture the aerial imagery, drone?

    yeah, it was fabulous. this was so relaxing here. quiet, bright, no dark corners for ruffians to jump out from. It was real leisurely and a great chance to take some time experimenting with shots. Very different to some of the more tense sites around

    Nice one dude, have to agree what a relaxed place to visit which is nice sometimes inbetween all the cat and mouse at other sites. There's some incredible graff in there, this painting (plus the 2 other similar ones) is by an Australian artist called Guido Van Helten who paints all over the world :thumb

    Fantastic report mate. Another one added to the list and not too far from me so this afternoon might be filled with a little excursion! Love the shots from the high vantage points. Thanks for sharing!
