    Visited with Hector Rex

    Seeing as we both had a free day, the sun was shining and this place wasn't too far away, we decided to give the place a mooch around. The last report I could find was 2010 so we felt the place deserved looking at again. The place was built as a shadow factory early in WW2 to manufacture wood for various aircraft and ships. The place is mostly stripped but we did find some nice things here and there. The factory floors here are huge which couple with the odd panel missing creates some beautiful sun ray effects.

    History:

    The exterior:

    Found a room with loads of documents. Some of them dated as far back as 1961:

    This storage area looked as though it hadn't been accessed in decades. Full of interesting things:

    Yeah not much of the large machinery like I seen in your, superb, report left. I didn't see the stretcher in the surgery either.

    I've just looked back at my report, I don't know what I was thinking with those borders. Shame about the surgery, it was one of the best I've seen!

    Great report! Mine will be up as soon as i upload my photos on my awfully slow internet!

    No worries man, my scouting pictures were crap to be fair and I didn't find any of the cool bits the first time round!
