    Report - Benacre Water Tower, Suffolk (April 2021)

    Report - Old unknown factory and warehouses. Essex/Suffolk boarder line September 20

    I found this old place in Brantham/Manningtree and I think it could be a chemical factory but I'm not too sure. The explore is pretty easy all things considered, everything is open and only a few of the rooms are blocked up from industrial junk. Although most of the rooms have multiple entrances...
