    We saw LDV in its glory. An LDV with rows upon rows of British built presses, robots that still moved at the push of a button. An LDV with half finished vans hanging from the roof, and the newspapers of the workers still on their benches from their last day at work...

    LDV is like any other derelict factory now, but that does not stop me wanting to see the parts of the works I missed from our previous visits. Another catalyst for me wanting to batter the rest is the rudeness of the new owners. I asked to go on site, and was bluntley refused. He told me that he had not even allowed Carl Chinn (A noteworthy Birmingham historian) access, and that there were to be no photographs of the site taken during it's demolition!

    So, I present to you thirty photographs, of LDV during its demolition! Security are shit hot and it's going to take work and cunning to see what remains unexplored. I would like to thank Dave and Joe for their help this week...
