    What better way to spend a glorious sunny afternoon with your wife than by crawling around in truly industrial quantities of spider webs and pigeon crap in the almost-to-total pitch black.

    Despite having our P3 masks firmly on throughout, I don’t think I’ll forget the less than pleasant atmosphere for a while. I also managed to gash my wrist on some broken glass right at the start of the explore. With the first aid kit in the car, and my torch revealing blood dripping from my wrist onto my camera bag I was worried that I’d have to abandon the explore, or at least risk getting out and trying to get back in again without being nabbed. Luckily some (very quiet) cursing, and compression onto my combats stemmed the flow after a few minutes, and we were able to press on.

    Unfortunately there is very little left inside by way of machinery, although there were a few odds and sods here and there. It was still a worthwhile and interesting explore – particularly given that we had scouted the site fully expecting to be unable to gain access. After my blow out at Mundesley TB Hospital the previous day, gaining access here helped restore a bit of my Urbex mojo.

    A (very) little bit about the history:

    Formerly known as F & G Smith Maltings, and built in 1870 and 1894, now owned by the Crisp Malting Group. It is a Grade II* listed building, and according to British Listed Buildings is a very complete and rare example of a surviving medium sized maltings.
