    For many people it was Oxygen Thief and Raddog’s pictures of Longbridge nearly Three years ago that got them interested in Urban Exploring and 28dayslater originally.
    Much has changed at Longbridge since then, with many of the buildings long gone. Thankfully though, the main ones are still there and work has resumed once again.
    In 2005 a Chinese Company called NAC bought the rights to develop and produce a new MG Sports Car and after three years that time has finally come.
    The car in question is the new MG TF LE500 and it’s meant to hit the dealers this month.
    Tims, Cobra00uk and I set off towards Birmingham for a night of MG hunting. There we met Tunnel Lover, who would be our Guide for the evening (many thanks again).
    After navigating multiple hazards on the way in, we finally reached the Production Line and the new MG.
    We seemed to have completely free reign in the main building, but kept vigilant at all times.
    Not a great deal remains of Longbridge's true Rover past, apart from the odd old Bumper or Door in a dark corner.
    Don’t get the idea that security are asleep on the job from this report, we believe we were just incredibly lucky.
    We were only a few feet away from getting rumbled on no less than four occasions while on site, with only some eagle eyed and quick footed action saving our skins time and again.
    After getting pretty much what we came for, we decided to call it night after five hours of cat and mouse and headed for home.
    Enjoy the Photos

    I diddnt realise there were other threads... I've moved all of them for now.

    Thing is this is dodgy ground. I know access is the same as when the place was empty but this is more serious than before. It is no longer in the hands of recievers, it is owned by a car company who could get really arsy at pics of their new car floating about.

    On another note fucking top work getting in and seeing all that epicness!!

    If anyone wants to go VERY soon, please please let me know coz I've wanted to see this place for ages (wahay noob noob, get her!) If I'd known it was possible, I would have gone by now but whenever I've asked anyone, they said there was nothing left apart from the tunnels so I never bothered. The time is nigh!
