    For the nearly 3 years I've been actively involved in UE I'd never found the time to do the last local site on my radar, Shippy Cement Works, until now. At a loose end me and Zotez hatched a plan to see the old girl and lo, it came to fruition.

    Beautiful weather and a lovely pub lunch in the excellent Rock of Gibraltar before the explore meant we were in high spirits and a wholly successful day was had, peppered with TBM's live updates from his explore of High Royds:p:

    Here's a potted history...

    The site has sadly been half demolished for many many years and much like Steetly Magnesite is mostly a mix of crumbing concrete and metal structures, rubble and twisted rebar metalwork. Still a good mooch if you're in the area, especially on a lovely sunny day.
