The Explore

We heard about the closure of Altanet Technologies Ltd a while ago now, they were a company who made Fibreglass and Carbon Fibre parts for military aircraft and Race Cars, despite the place looking rather sorry for its self, it was quite a cool explore. With the power being on it give us quite a broad opportunity Photographically speaking - one of the usual toils is lighting the scene to show it best, its great when its done for you... right? There was still a fair amount to see here, the Store rooms are still brimming with components and supplies, but not a lot else is left with a lot of rooms being completely trashed by the local 'Oiyks' i can only assume! i think the highlight for us was getting freaked out every 5 minutes as we could hear what could only sound like a Washing Machine, we put it down to a Fan with its bearings out or something, but as we made our way up to the higher level, there it was, a washing machine chugging away to its self.. must be one of the most random finds on an explore to date!

Ive discovered a whole room of washing machines chugging away to themselves on an explore once.. Turned out the site was being used as a camp for polish builders and they were all out on a job!

Always sad to see a manufacturing jig left like that, no doubt engineers spent months designing it...

Funny to see a washing machine running, good to see that they are ironing their shirts too!
