The Brickworks / Hanson - Swillington - June 2011

Visited with DrHowser


This is effectively a mothballed brick works, personally I found it a little bit bland but it was still a great explore as always.

Nabbed from DHL :)...

A brick-making factory in West Yorkshire has closed and all 45 staff have been made redundant.

The closure of the Hanson site in Leeds, has been blamed on the downturn in the building industry.

A Hanson spokesman said the UK brick market had fallen by 40% in the last year and the closure was a "tough but necessary" decision.

Plant operative Ian Ball, who has worked at the factory for 29 years, said staff were gutted.

He said: "It's like a tight-knit community here and all the lads are gutted.

"We've always pulled through in the past but I've never known it as bad as this time."

Mark Whiteley has worked at the factory since he left school 15 years ago.

"It's all I've known, I've never done anything else," he said.

"Now I've got to re-train - I've got three kids and they come first, they are my main priority and I've got to get a job to provide for them."
