    Explored with Squirrell 911.

    A fun explore, definitely worth another visit. The site is pretty huge, we managed to see most areas but there were some workmen in one area chucking some stuff in a skip, we managed to sneak past them to get into the delivery area.

    Shires was located in an old TV factory in Bradford, it moved here from Guiseley in 1990.

    This all sounds good, but in the six months to June 30 2009 the company saw turnover fall from £39 million to £28 million. It had an operating loss of £630,000 with debts of £3.9 million. They changed the working hours resulting in 4 staff striking claiming their wages were effectively being cut by £1500.

    In April 2009 they called in the administrators, laid off 60 workers and eventually closed the factory.
