Ok Ill start sharing some of the back catalogue

Anglo Beef processors, was an abattoir up until 95 with more than 300,000 animals being slaughtered a year, it remained operational as a packing plant until 2005 when the doors were shut.
There is an ongoing battle with local villagers trying to stop plans for a new rail freight terminal, & at the moment planning has been quashed!

I explored on my own & I can report this place is grim!
I mean very grim. You wouldn't expect a place like this to be pretty but with an air of death around, & a seemingly endless maze of pitch black rooms it had me on edge, not to mention what lays in the upper floors!!!

There's a lot of pics but you'll have to look on to see what I mean.

Starting at the far end there is water treatment plants/

I entered the main plant through typical cattle sheds, these have a lot of paperwork & a few other interesting bits left inside.

Directly off the sheds you enter a tiled room which soon becomes apparent is the buiseness end of things!

Moving on into the maze of processing rooms, all pretty much the same with a few interesting bits & bobs, particularly a lot of signage left as it seems they took H & s very seriously!

Back outside I headed over to the maintenance shop, this interested me being in the trade there was a lot of bits left in here.

Leaving the site in the rain I almost missed this excellent selection of machinery just across the field!

Feeling pleased with myself I proceeded straight to McDonalds for lunch, the irony of which only set in once I was tucking in.
Loads more picks on my flickr

Worked there for nearly 20 years, at it's height it was killing 1500 pigs a day, and 1000 beasts (cattle) and 500 lambs. So that's about 780,000 animals a year.
