    Morlands Tannery, Glastonbury​


    My daughter was responsible for spotting this one, while out and about with her mates, so seemed only fair that I took her along to have a closer look.

    A little history;

    Exterior

    This is one of two remaining buildings left on what would have been a big site in its day. Second building is well sealed.

    Found our access to this one without too much trouble, but had to scamper in quickly as we were overlooked by a group of pikey caravans on the nearby waste ground.

    The building in General is in a pretty shonky condition, with structural scaffolding and wall braces holding parts of the place up.

    The internal courtyard

    Despite this, the roof seemed fairly good and the interior is, for the most parts, pretty dry.

    We found a few things of interest.

    Some machinery

    Stripped out switchgear

    Lots of paperwork

    And general derpyness

    And finally, Georgia the explorer

    Should mention that the ground floor area near the pikey camp is being used for storage of various tools, fuel cans etc.

    Nothing too outstanding, but we spent an enjoyable hour mooching around on a lovely evening.

    Cheers for looking :)

    Yes mate, assuming all the wasteland surrounding the remaining buildings were once factory buildings, it must have been immense. Pikeys / travellers seem to have moved in big style currently.
