    Hi,

    When I was a kid me and my mates used to walk past this little enclosure. The wall is quite high, probably 5-6ft and obviously designed to keep people out. because there's a pretty big hole behind it. Anyone know what's down there?

    There are a few old oil tanks here and quite a nice weighbridge if you're in the area, too. Quite overgrown, but quite interesting all the same.

    Then, and this isn't really a lead but it always fascinated me, there's this square pool in the centre of a field - could it be a mineshaft? It's proper deep and definitely not a swimming pool. If anyone knows anything about it I'd love to know.

    Thanks,

    DK63

    Is that the back of the sweet factory?

    Err sort of... the distribution centre for the Swizzels is down that road - they're not technically the same as the railway divides them. There's also a company down there that makes pallets I think. You can work it out from the map links though

    The company behind there makes plastic bottles

    The tanks used to be part of the factory.

    I've never noticed the square bit on Albion road if I'm honest.
