    After a couple of conversations with Bigjobs, we decided to go give this place a crack considering it's only 1/2 a mile from my house.

    Getting onto the site wasn't much of a problem what so ever. It's surrounded by lots and lots of empty warehouse's which are currently up for rental. We came across the furnaces, drawing rooms and site offices of which all are pretty mint.

    The nobbled pint glass that this site was notorious for producing were scattered allover the site along with boxes of prototype glasses for big companies like Pepsi & Guinness.

    The fun was put to a hault as we spotted security sat meters away from us in his hut. We started heading back the way we came and took a look at the main chimney as we passed. Its here that we saw a second security guard driving right past us to the other side of the site. Several roof-hops later to a vantage point and Bigjobs points out that said security guard has parked up at a secondary hut and is patrolling the site with a huge Alsatian!

    Thats where the comedy moments began, stuck on a rooftop where the only way down dropped us right in between the two guards and my rectum doing ten to the dozen.

    Anyway, a daytime visit was swiftly arranged and heres the pics to follow;

    Took another look at this place, originally for a quick wander which resulted in us taking in the majority of the site before taking in the fine view of the local Police station custody suite.
