    woohoo another one i didnt know about,as i got family sort of near sidcup thought id give it a go.

    Access was piss easy and you can tell why its full of graffitti as any one can literally get in there.

    last report from this place was some time in 2014, and to be honest its not that great, unless you like graf that is.

    A little bit of history

    Klinger was an Austrian manufacturer for valves and borosilicate gauge glasses. In 1936, they expanded their production facilities to England and opened this factory in Sidcup. 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.

    The building has been derelict for many years now and a planning APPLICATION[​IMG] for an IKEA store has been withdrawn so it currently sits in limbo with palisade fencing around the perimeter. The majority of the building is in a serious state of decay and hasn't been helped by 2 fires from earlier in the year.

    I've tried to get in there around a month ago and the fences at the back were fixed up again. Are they back down now or what?

    Come on emietron surly if you managed to make it there you can have a look around for diffrent access points. Some are more obvious than others. To be honest it doesn't look like it would be that difficult to get in ...

    Posts asking about access are just foolhardy.
