Hi all!
This was my first abandoning adventure. Me and a few friends travelled over to Derbyshire to venture inside this huge old abandoned factory. It was amazing inside! It had a lot of old paperwork, an old safe, a crane, spiral staircase, a long platform above head with access, clocking in machine, and much more!
I'm unsure of how to upload pictures, but I have around 60 pictures of this place. Absolutely amazing place to walk around! If I've missed anything, feel free to add it in the comments :) and if you have been here, let me know!

It is Butterley 100% just down the road from me, it is a good explore to be fair, be careful up on the top level now though the floor is getting a bit soft and a few holes developing! I have some pictures of this place and would happily upload to this thread rather create another duplicate thread? Also don't get caught in here as it was recently subject to an arson attack and police have been patrolling the area, and the Derbyshire police HQ is about 5 mins up the hill at Ripley!

I've shot in butterley, and we had to climb through the gate and through a window, I went back a week later and the window we went through had been reboarded up.

Well as they are boarding it up all the time you will have to go and see yourself, it was quite a climb to get in but worth it.

I was born and raised four miles away from Ripley and remember this place well, when it was still a busy factory. The Butterley Engineering Company were famous for manufacturing the roof supports of St. Pancras railway station (still there). I also remember the weird but innovative "Wulpa" landmark, which stood on the corner at the bottom of the hill:

I worked at the Police HQ from 1998-2001. There are now houses on what was much of the factory. There's also a canal tunnel very close by.

Start by typing the name of the place (which is mentioned in posts above) into google, if u really need more help after that perhaps exploring is not for you
