    I was passing this place yesterday, when I spied a method of access that didn't entail climbing through a broken window. Its been abandoned for a long time now, and has probably been investigated previously, by others.

    Inside its chav'd to hell, sadly.

    Information scraped from [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ROF_Patricroft].

    I only had my Sony DSC-P73 on me and even then, only a 64Mb memory card loaded, so pictures aren't brilliant, or plentiful.

    The first thing I noticed, using the entrance I did, was that the room was filled with blueprints or plans all over the floor. None of them were significantly interesting though.

    The first thing I noticed having gained entrance. This rather charming, "old style" lamp post.

    And a yellow hardhat on the floor in the undergrowth.

    A circular enclosure surrounded by a white fence, had this sign. An old mine ventshaft, perhaps? Patricroft DID have mines at one time, I am told. It was too overgrown to see properly.

    A magnetic stirrer inside an old boiler house. I remember using these at college, many moons ago, but why was it in a boiler house?

    This is actually a panorama of 2 images stitched via Hugin and Enblend, and resized to 600 pixels wide in photochop. Instead of the usual "chair" shot, its a "couch" shot.

    I will be returning, in normal shoes, and with my finepix and 2 1Gb cards for more pics soon.
