    Hello again. Well, i finally managed to find access to the old Typhoo factory :-) Believe me, id been checking the doors on this place for months lol. Every day while on jury service and many times since , persistence finally paid off though on a day of exploring with @@DdotMC , @@Buffalo , @@Kiean14 , @@plod and a small person who shall remain anon . "That door looks like its been opened" next thing, im running around like a kid in toys r us snapping at anything i could see. 197 photos in all from here, dont worry i wont post all of them lol. This will prob get slightly pic heavy tho so sorry in advance. Ill be posting the pics in 3 stages, the boiler room, the inside of the building and then the rooftop (i did like that rooftop)
    Massive thanx to all the crew there that day, was a long day but definatly one of the best days exploring iv had. The ppl youre with enhance the experience imo.

    HISTORY
    All the links iv found regarding typhoo tea appear to direct you to a search engine for some reason , so ill link to
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Typhoo#History rather than ramble on aimlessly , a lot of the other info on this site is outdated , apart from this......

    THE EXPLORE
    After meeting up with all of the above in brum we headed off for a check of this place on the way to somewhere else. After a little look in the boiler room which is seperated from the main building we walked the perimiter checking doors , and even a few manholes, untill we were in. On the whole pretty much an empty shell with little interesting bits stashed away. !00% worth a look if youre lucky enough to find it open. The infamous strong room below the ground floor was a no go , might need to take another look at that one. But the roof was something else, all the seperate levels and ladders, kinda reminded me of a 90s platform game lol.
    First up, the boiler room....................

    Nice little building with some interesting bits about , be careful of discarded needles tho , they are all over the place , also a lot of oil about so probably not a good idea to wear your sunday best if paying a visit.

    On to the main building.
