    A true cathederal of industry, Hunts has been left to become a dumping ground for the scum of society. It's a great old building, that once produced large castings. The "Griffen" foundry has been largly demolished, and now sits in a vast wasteground of rubble, patterns, half demolsihed buildings and piles and piles of rubbish.

    But look beyond that rubbish and there are some great old patterns. One has to use their imagination but just imagine that huge hall alive with molton iron. A great old place and I love it.
