    Explored with Yorrick & King Mongoose.

    Big thanks to Yorrick for the heads up on this one. This site is huge, and spent a good few hours mooching around. Getting a bit trashed now, and the site has planning applications in motion, so may be demolished in the future. One of the buildings had asbestos warnings, so wasn’t going to venture into the tented off areas. Several interesting industrial areas, but most of the machinery has been stripped out now, but not all.

    The history has been done before, but in a nutshell it housed around 300 employees and was built for jet engine production, and nuclear power plant components (even found a drawing for Sellafield.) Can’t find out when it closed, but it dates back at least to the 40s.
