    Explored with CatVStyle, Dweeb, Turkey and Squirell911.

    There's a bit of history on other reports but I can't find anything authoritative that I'd like to quote.

    Access was interesting but you take your choice... it's either a bit of pain or risk being spotted.

    In the old engine room...

    Outside it really is like stepping back in time, I could imagine the men, women and trucks working away here...

    DSC_5600_ShiftN.jpg

    There are two chimneys...

    Both chimneys...

    This was a toilet block. I took the picture because I thought it was of a rather hefty construction. It's only when I looked at the pictures at home that I realised it's just a thin cladding...

    Chimney in the sun...

    The labs...

    Admin was a nice surprise, I was surprised it was this intact given the rest of the site is a bit of a ruin...

    DSC_5633_ShiftN.jpg

    There are three acid-etched windows, I'm surprised they have survived at all. Images edited, cropped, inverted and merged into one...

    From admin we went back into the works...

    and then we went for a climb and a dodgy walk...

    DSC_5645.jpg

    DSC_5640.jpg

    DSC_5641.jpg

    From up here you could see every tile has been removed...

    DSC_5643.jpg

    Then pretty much a regroup and off to the various needle-pit mills of Bradford for the day.

    All in all a good explore, thanks to everyone involved.

    nice shots OT

    As with dweeb you've made this site shine brighter than it has in ages!

    Off the back of these 2 good reports I suspect this place will be seeing more traffic!

    Demolition well under way here. A couple of empty shells and the two chimneys all that remain.
