Butterly Engineering - Riply, Derbyshire (August 2019) explored with @jaws

Not a clue about the location or the area... too far down south for me!
I'm usually quite good with reports but this location was explored on a whim and we didn't look into it.
Here's some stolen history for context - quite interesting to read now looking back on the explore

''The Butterley Company was an English manufacturing firm founded as Benjamin Outram and Company in 1790. Portions of it existed until 2009.
Notable patents were taken out by the company's manager, Sir John Alleyne. In December 1859 Alleyne patented a method of producing a load-bearing iron beam known as the Butterley Bulb, used in many early iron steam ships including HMS Warrior In 1861 Alleyne patented a method that allowed hot ingots to be moved around a roller after they had passed by just one person. During the production of steel sections the bar has to be repeatedly put through rollers. Allowing this to happen using just one person was a substantial increase in productivity. By 1863 the company was rolling the largest masses of iron of any foundry in the country. Among its most famous buildings are the Barlow train shed at St. Pancras in London which included 240-foot spans
.''

The only building we could get into was the actual warehouse itself (the more important building anyway) the rest of it was sealed tight. We did come across a sensor/camera type device - whether it worked or not is a mystery. No one came in the hour or so we were in there...






Nice long shot down the warehouse // Down the crane ladders



Nice spiral staircase shot // The view from the crane..



How it looked from the crane cabin // Daily Star from 1985!



Hope you enjoyed reading and looking at my pics
