    I wanted to go here more for personal reasons than anything else. My mum grew up in Chelmsford, and she and her mum and a lot of their friends all worked for Marconi at different times.

    Well what can I say it sure is a mess - pikeys and graffiti artists have been at play here. Having said that if you move away from the factory floor areas and into the other areas, it's not actually too bad. It's totally stripped, hardly anything to show what it's purpose was which is a shame.

    Also it's huge - it really is a pretty big site, you don't realise until you're inside. There must be 4 very large factory floors, with several other large spaces as well as a 5 story high admin block, which although very samey does get better as you go higher. Then there's the very oldest part right at the front.

    Visited on the spur of the moment with Obscurity and his misses - cheers for a good day people :thumb

    It has to be said, this bit's pretty bland

    Amazingly all the glass is intact, but the ceilings trashed.

    I love the roof of this building.

    Reception area was pretty good, shame it's no where near as neat as it was in earlier reports, but it could be worse.

    The main lobby of the oldest part.

    Although it was trashed in parts and pretty stripped, I thought it was worth it just for the building its self. - it would have been fantastic to have seen it in it's prime. :thumb
