    I've got a few reports from before Christmas which need putting up so I'll start with this one. Visited with Randomnut and his mate (soz, really can't remember her name!) on a cold winters morning. So cold in fact that i had to nip into a local charity shop to buy a scarf and hat for the day.

    Some info stolen from Abandoned Britain:

    Lying on the main road between Shoreham and Upper Beeding Is the sprawling site of Shoreham Cement Works. Once a major employer in the area its towering structure now lies empty.

    There has been a limestone quarry on this site since 1851 and the end to production in 1991 marked the end of over 150 years of activity. The owners had no obligation to demolish the buildings or restore the landscape to its natural state, so production was simply stopped, leaving the buildings as a well known local monument.

    The site stands in two halves spit by the main road with a tunnel connecting the two halves of the site. The western side was the main entrance to the site home to the distribution plant and the administrative blocks. To the east the industrial site and quarry.

    Not a bad first site as you enter the main building:

    Could have easily spent another few hours there but the darkness was drawing in. Had a bit of cat & mouse with security on the way out as they were blocking our only exit. It ended up in a stalemate until they drove around one side of the building we were hiding behind....and we legged it around the other. Textbook :thumb
