    Ahh, a return to the very first site I visited (unfortunately my old report isn't on here anymore, though it is avaliable in picture form on this flickr - http://www.flickr.com/photos/52940430@N06/ which was created with my old exploring group :rolleyes: )

    Well, over a year and a half later and i'm back, hopefully for good this time - so I thought i'd drop my first visit to a place I already know, that and the fact I have no car and this isn't far from my house....

    So let's begin, these pictures all had to be taken on my Galaxy S2 - due to this explore being a last minute decision my camera battery wasn't charged properly beforehand, but I still think they came out pretty well.

    So we started off finding a way into the actual site, which proved to be harder than on our previous visits, it was evident that a lot had changed over the past year and we honestly wasn't sure what to expect after negotiating some steep drops and a lot of fencing

    Soon enough we were greeted with the familiar warehousing of the absolutely massive site and although a few trees had been cut down and unfortunately some new graffiti was in place, everything else was pretty much a trip down memory lane

    Thanks to the Selco builders warehouse between the outer buildings and the main factory area, we had to make a sharpish run across the open ground from the warehousing, but thankfully it was a quiet day

    We headed into the main building and decided which areas to tackle first, we decided to catch a snap of the main production area and head down into the basement, which we never explored fully in our previous run due to lack of good torchlight

    As if the darkness and creepy noises weren't enough, joking around about torture chambers before stumbling across these two objects made us turn our torches as wide beam as they could go before continuing into the depths of the enormous basement.

    Still alive although with my partner a little shaken (Definitely should'nt have mentioned F.E.A.R to him) we emerged and headed to the doorways off of the main production line area - onto the balcony where the big cheese would have watched over the manifacturing of ball bearings.

    We then headed up into the office sections of the building where some blinds blowing in the wind managed to stop both of our hearts for a second :(

    After wandering around for a little trying to find a staircase up to the lift machinery - we almost fell down a three story drop - which looked like this from the bottom. Last time we visited the site, these holes were covered by metal sheeting that was most probably either looted or split into fragments and laying under our feet - here was the view from the bottom

    As we continued to ascend the building we finally reached our final photo of the day and then proceeded to poke around the bits that we had visited before

    Overall an excellent explore if it wasn't for the entry - but thats all part of it in the end.

    I really hope you like the photos and feedback would be appreciated, even though you don't have much to go on with a phone camera :p
