    Part 2 of the Stewartby Report:

    Once Stewartby was at the heart of the brick-making industry in Britain, and at some point (although I can't seem to pin-point the exact date ) it was the largest works in the world.
    The Marston Vale area in which Stewartby is centered in had 167 chimney stacks, all part of the brick manufacturing trade that the area used to be so well known for.
    The London brick Co hit a peak output of 16 million bricks per day at one point...ooohh how I wish I was around back then to see it!
    Anyways enoguh babble and here's the second lot of images, I eventually trimmed down 400 images to under 200 but it was still one big fucker of a set so I split the thing up in chronological order of visitations.


    Ahhh I loved this area so much, I think over 50 percent of my pic load came of this, from every which angle.
    ...uuh yess I did try turning some but nothing happened.


    This is a bit bright for my liking but I kept it in to show some of the underground areas.This was actually taken at nightime and the artificial lights in some areas are super orange.


    Conveyor belt bridge that connects two buildings.

    This is the only picture that came out bearable of one of the most interesting areas at the works. it was part of where the bricks were 'baked' and dyed their distinctive red colour.A combination of the red dust that coated everything and orange lighting made it look like the place was on fire.I also came out of here coated in red.:banghead

    And a few shots by night...
