BGC (Midland Brick)
Found this one a couple of weeks ago, and managed to squeeze in a quick explore on the way home from work today. Access was easy, just walked in, lol.
As far as I can tell the place has been closed for a few years, the admin building was kinda trashed and some other buildings may need further explorations, my main focus however was the extensive artwork and getting as high as I can.

Now the history of the place, there isn't much, however, Two of the biggest names in building now have just one name Midland Brick is now Boral Bricks In 1946, Midland Brick and Boral were born on opposite sides of Australia A little over 20 years ago, these two companies came together to become one of the biggest manufacturers of building products in this country. Some of there industrial sites were then closed, not sure as to why.
The history of Midland Brick is very extensive and I have a link to there site that gives lots of history for there company, not this particular site. http://www.boral.com.au/WA/history-1946-1960.asphttp://

Enjoy.
