    Hey everyone,

    This report has been such a long time coming because of the ludicrous amount of photos I've taken In Stewartby.
    I've visited about 4 times now, not every time taking photos but exploring the site without being spotted whilst it was being shut down proved to be more exiting and time consuming than I'd anticipated.
    Anyways due to the sheer volumes of pics I've split the explores up into 2 parts.
    Origionally owned by The London Brick Company Stewartby has been owned by the Hanson group since the 1980's.
    The works was forced to close down due to high sulphur dioxide emissions.
    The pictures I've taken are partly live because I began exploring it whilst the plant was winding down for closure.
    Anyways onto the pics and I hope you enjoy:)

    One of the many underground spaces where conveyor belts run.Very dusty down here.

    Long lines of bricks nearing the end of the production lines waiting for a red dye which they will never get now!



    Messages left by the workers.


    There were dozens of these seating areas all over the plant with little heaters, some of them that were very high up in the works were so exposed to the elements workers must have been bitterly cold working there during the winter months.

    One of the many thermostats in the works.
