    You might want to have a quick read of the FAQs mate, probably should go in the video section

    There was a story by the late great Blaster Batts, when a press photographer asked him where was the best place to stand to take a picture of a falling factory chimney. Blaster placed a matchbox on the ground and says, it will fall well short of here and you will get a good shot of the inside before it collapses.. 'well short' to Blaster was about 6 feet! [before health & softey of course]

    The story goes the snapper shat himself & forgot to remove his lens cap as well - Told a good tale did Blaster.

    Damn, shame to see this go. But hopefully now the conversion will take place before more of the place is lost.

    I wish they had renovated this site and kept the tower as a landmark, now I drive through the village and don't even realise I've gone through it! I agree though, development needs finishing. Trawling through gutted corridors isn't nearly as interesting, as anyone who's been to Rauceby multiple times will tell you.
