Thanks to Bikin Glynn for taking me to this site. It lived up to it’s reputation as the biggest site in Northamptonshire. Spent 2 hours trying to go through all the units, believe to be in the region of x 95 units hard to tell with a lot of them being in the pitch black!!!!

Nice pics Bakers especially considering they r phone pics. (particularly the last one ;-) )
Cant believe I have been 5 or 6 times & we still found a load of new rooms lol

Tip edit & put a few space bars between each pic, it makes it better to view.

Worked here for nearly 20 years, did you know that McDonalds burger meat came from here. When you're told it's prime beef, I can tell you the burgers are made from boned out flank and plate. If you don't know what that is google it

Is flank a good cut? What was it like here? It felt quite grim in places tbh! But I enjoyed it. Huge place and very cold
Inside. The canteen was quite cool. What was their food like?

Flank is just the equivalent to breast of lamb in effect just bigger and minced. It was a fantastic place to work. Finished up there running the loading bay. The canteen was great, fantastic food, all cooked by 4 women, and there were hundreds working there. You saw it in the bare, imagine it all lit with strip lighting, the chatter and banter. Very happy times and I was earning £500 a week as a slaughter an in 1983!!!

The first picture in this shows the lairage, where the animals were kept before slaughter. Most were there only there a few hours before their death. The second pic shows the blood pit, and the third is the hinged door which was operated after the beast(cattle) had been shot in the forehead with bolt gun. They dropped instantaneously. They died very quick. I know, I had the licence to kill! Slaughtering stopped in early 1990's, and it resorted to a packing plant, I believe. Meat products, burgers and such like. If you are a fan of mince and you buy the lean mince, what you are buying is cow beef, probably imported. When a cow reaches the end of it's milk producing life, as it has very little fat the carcass is mainly minced. After all it's already earned it's money. Cow beef has very little flavour as flavour comes from fat.
