    Visited with Clebby, and with thanks to Dave and Joe who are as ever responsible for the original lead!

    My photos dont really do the place justice. We managed only half an hour inside before they caught up with us. However being essentially one large building covered by a whole array of CCTV and 3-4 guards i didn't think we would get to see as much as we did so i cant complain! Hopefully more will come from the place as the site matures. :thumb

    Sad news that this plant is now under demolition. Good news is a lot of the ancillary areas have opened up and provided quite an enjoyable mornings exploring for myself and Clebby. No doubt this is one of the nicest 50s factorys ive had the pleasure of seeing!

    Offices and Labs

    My quick glance into the front office block onn a previous occasion had shown quite a modernised building but turns out i had been looking in the wrong windows as really its was amazingly 50s in there and lots left too.

    Social Club

    One of the best clubs ive seen. The projection room was a nice little find. Reminded me of stumbling across the one at Derby Kingsway.
