    I used to live in featherstone as a child and remember this site well. We called it the Ministry and would play here for hours. some times bringing the police helicopter out.lol :p:
    well enough about my history, heres some on ROF Featherstone:
    Royal Ordnance Factory Featherstone was filling factory No. 17. The factory used to specialise in filling various munitions, including, bombs, shells, smoke bombs and cartridges.
    It served a major role in WWll but has since remained derelict.There are many buildings on site, as they were needed to house the different types of munitions which would need to be segregated. BAE Systems took over the site and kept the majority of the buildings but sold some off to neighbouring Brinsford prison. for a while the prisoners looked after cattle here and did tasks in the milk parlour. (Evidence of this can still be seen). The prison eventually extended its buildings on their land. BAE promised the locals there would be a creation of community forests and local residents are still waiting for this promise to be fulfilled. At present the remaining site is up for disposal and planning permission has been sought to transform the site into a housing estate.
    Really good explore with some great art work upon the decaying walls.
