    Hi all,
    here is my first ever report about my first ever explore. Went there with Jess (check out her excellent report here) and Luke_Takes_Pictures. Most rooms where reduced to smithereens and a lot of the equipment that was probably there once is gone but it turned out to be a nice (and very relaxed) explore as the site kept revealing itself to us; every time we thought we couldn't go any further we would find a way forward (or up) either by means of a room with a disturbingly squishy floor or a terrifying outdoor staircase. All in all a really great introduction to the exploring world :) Here's a little history of the place although Jess already covered pretty much all of it in her report:
    Factory use while open: offices, cutting shop, tool room and storage. Completed in 1937 to the designs of Wallis Gilbert and Partners for Richard Klinger Ltd, founded in Austria in 1893. The building has been vacant for many years. Previous planning application for IKEA store withdrawn. Future use uncertain.

    All pictures were taken on my Yashica Minister III. I love that little beast! :D
