    LDV Group Ltd, Birmingham - July 2009

    This is one hell of a place, a truly epic site. Although possibly the most nerve-racking experience so far, with loud noises coming from everywhere. After getting in to the press works all manner of bangs were coming from the far side, which I assumed to be security closing in. Turned out it was a mixture of cargo doors in the wind, and seagulls on the roof. I took this trip on my own, and after waiting for the sun to rise enough to light the machinery I started wandering around.

    Brace yourself for photo overload.

    BEASTS. You can't appreciate the size of these things until you're standing underneath it.

    This makes the pressing machinery look tiny, it's just a massive building. Pressing molds are stacked up everywhere, all over the works.

    It's just like the plant's shut for the weekend, and the workers are due back 8am Monday morning.

    Next was the Maxus vehicle assembly hall (F Block), full of everything you need to make your own van.

    Next was on to J Block, which houses Water testing, and repair bays amongst other unknown things.

    Layout designs of commercial vehicles.

    There were hundreds of decals and stickers on these benchs.

    Heat lamps.

    29.jpg

    There are vans EVERYWHERE.

    I paid one last visit to the Press shop to see if the light had improved from earlier, and to get a few more shots as they're addictive.

    There's still SO much more to see, more visits are definitely in order.
