    Excuse the vagueness of the location, this place is relatively unchavved and has some real gems in it.

    I've walked past this place most days for the last 3+ years, since I moved to where I'm currently living. I didn't give it a second thought until I went to recce another site. I decided a closer inspection was in order and got lucky :cool:

    I can't find much in the way of history for the company who occupied this building, but I believe they left in 2007. My best guess is that they either merged with another company or got bought out, as it looks like they basically just closed and left.

    The building in slowly becoming more dilapidated, but the artifacts if you can call them that are still quite pristine.

    This is the first time I've posted my pics at 640px max, if this is better than my previous 800px ones then feedback would be gratefully received!

    Any way on with the pics :thumb
