    Visited last year, it was good to get back here as this was the second or third place I ever visited.

    best pictures I've seen, maybe. The first few make it look industrial and large, didn't think it was like that.

    Thanks OT, the factory space was bigger than I remembered and a wide angle has only accentuated it! The sheltered is cramped in comparison!

    It is rather industrial and large being a sea plane factory. The smaller sections are the air raid tunnels that spur off of the large underground factory.

    god i miss that place first place i ever explored and i got to film there with the bbc inside out team on "urban explorers" which was great
    you're right it was a huge factory for building the seaplanes mainly the engines as well the shorts company is still going now as they moved to belfast what a amazing part of history will revisit there soon
