    Following hot on the heels of OT, myself and lawrence decided to check out this huge marine engineering companys vulcan works site in eccles as we were impressed by the scale in OT's pictures, we werent to be dissapointed.

    Anyway, a quick bit of history to begin.

    After founding the company in 1887, when work on the Manchester Ship Canal began, Ernest Mitchell relocated his engineering works to the current Green Lane premises in 1908 before joining forces with Edwin Shackleton. The company went on to create a successful crankshaft manufacturing and repair company for customers worldwide.

    Green Lane was an area inhabited by keen engineering entrepreneurs at the turn of the last century. Inventor of the steam hammer, James Nasmyth, had premises there also.

    I have that many bloody safe Pics what with there being at least one in every building ive explored that i thought id go for a detailed shot rather than my customary full picture

    Looking down the main building from the offices, ive never seen so much broken glass in my life, every single roof skylight is smashed in a good 500m run, you certainly arent moving stealthily in there.
