    Visited with Tweek, NickUK and Fishbrain

    After Tweek and I did the worst derp of my life, we met up with Fish and NickUK. After a brief stop in the local Lidl to stock up on cookies (which would later make an appearance in another report) and energy drink we headed over to the works

    We made our entrance and proceeded to photograph the shit out of the place.

    When we visited the place had been closed 5 years, it had gone into receivership once and for all after being in business for 130 in one form or another.

    From the BBC News website:
    The relics of its former glory were there to see...

    Of more interest to me than the detritus left about was the industry itself

    It is undoubtedly a shame to see a huge part of Stoke's history left to rot. What actually prompted me to post this was one of the Stoke lads saying this had gone up in flames. Indeed the BBC has a report dated January 2012:

    From more recent reports and what the Stoke boys said, it appears to have been cleared somewhat. Might be worth poking my head back in to see what's changed.

    Thanks for looking :thumb
