    Visited a while back with Mr Dan Explores after failing a site local to me. Some of you may remember my report and photos of the Piano Parts making side which closed in 1980.

    The site sits in the English town of Roade, Northamptonshire

    This more modern section of the site continued the production of vehicle parts until 2011. The site seems to have been used in more recent times for Police Training but still retains some of its interesting features, such as a Laboratory.

    In the 1960's the factory was thought to have approximatley 1,800 workers. Sadly; a few years larer the closure of Roade railway station caused the factory began to slip into decline.

    This was probably the third outing of my new 50mm lens which I have since fallen in love with.
