    Location: Volcrepe Rubber Components, Glossop, Derbyshire

    Present: HiddenShadow; Nckt; Pigeons

    State: Low Vandalism - Natural Decay

    This was my first time using my Nikon D40 with 18-55mm Lens, some of the pictures won't be great, but no flash was used and different setting were experimented with, so hopefully the presentation will be better than some of my older reports.

    Volcrepe manufactured rubber / foam components, manufacturing products such as Mouse-mats and Shoe soles.

    The company closed down in 2002, to merge with another company, St Albans Rubber.

    In the past couple of years much of the remaining machinery has been removed and the second half (apparently the best) sealed.

    Explored with Nckt (Thanks for all of your help :thumb )

    Funny one this one, wasn't anything particularly interesting about it in terms of features etc, but I really enjoyed myself, probably because I had new company and my new D40 to play with :D

    Oh, could you have a look at some of my old reports and feedback if you feel this is an improvement and what I could do next time if anything to improve. (I've bought the D40 with the aim of being able to take nice shots, not just point and shoot)

    Thanks to Nckt for all advice.

    Hope you enjoyed!

    Cheers,

    HS
