    Sorry about the amount of pictures but i had to do the place justice! As we set off there was talk of "will there be any workmen there? Or will we be ok?". The answer was - sort of!
    Cerebos closed fully in 2001 as Sharwoods Factory. Over the years it has produced numerous brands of food that YOU have probablys ate! Over the last year it has detiriorated rapidly after being stripped. However, the whole place was just generally smashed up. All you could hear was Drip, Drop, Splodge... We didnt many to get any externals from the front as the fire brigade were doing some demonstration thing. I know it has been done before, but maybe not to this extent.

    Storage Warehouses. This is the oldest part of the factory and was the first part to close.

    But changed my mind as there was nowhere to sit!


    I had fun playing with my new flash gun. I needed it because in some parts it was PITCH black! I also nearly fell into the red swimming pool thingy!

    Hope You Enjoyed
    Jack! :)
