    If anyone in Essex is looking for a site with plenty of photo opportunity
    then I have found one that needs pretty prompt response, as it is
    due to be bulldozed imminently and is getting vandalised by the day.

    You have probably got 4-6 weeks before its too late.



    Here is what it USED to look like back in history

    And more recently, just before its closure.

    It has been set fire to, twice, and a lot of the main buildings are pretty well boarded up and therefore dark. Already some of the brick buildings (offices) have been levelled and more will soon follow.

    Here is the Front View

    And the side view.

    Here are some of the shots taken once inside.

    I hope that this report isn't too picture heavy (Less is more, Etc) but it is a huge site and there is a lot more than one person on his own (And a newbie to URBEX at that) can manage.

    Hey Jordan, 2 of the biggest buildings are still standing. Did you ever go and check the place out?
