    Some additional information here!

    We decided to have a look around here after doddy noticed that the door was open on his way back from Shire's where we'd been in the morning. We presumed that there were people working in there but didn't bump into anyone for about an hour and half. In the end we bumped into them whilst we were in the offices, they seemed more shocked than us to be honest and we had a chat with them about the place for a bit and what they were up to before being shown the quickest route to the exit!

    It's a really big building, and it's easy to get confused as to where you've just been or how you got there (Maybe we were just stupid :rolleyes:). However unfortunately the main factory part is largely empty, except the kilns, some unfinished ware and some other bits and bobs. The offices however seem like they just upped sticks and left them as they were, not really that interesting photographically but there was plenty of paper work and the likes to have a look though. I'm not entirely sure when the place closed, but a lot of things inside seem to be dated 1993, although it looks in remarkable condition if that's the case. If someone does know more then let me know :)

    I might of gone a little over the top with the fisheye, but fancied trying something new (AKA I was too lazy to change lenses).
