After dropping the wife off at work, I thought I'd have a drive around Hockley to see if any work was being started on some explores I've done in the area. Right away I spotted Progressive Engineering was being worked on. Next door is this place. Ashton&Moore Ltd, started in 1925 and mainly connected to the aero industry. Their main business is electroplating and anodising.
Inside was quite a bit of the equipment left behind from these processes. Huge dipping tanks for the electroplating and some acid bath stuff too. You gotta be careful in there, as there are still some chemical viles in there.
