The Explore:
so after a failed attempt at carshalton, a success at coulsdon and fullers earthworks @Minor and i decided to head Dorking bound to ClockHouse Brickworks. There was no sign of security anywhere (on the way in at least) but gates and fences were covered in anti-climb paint,all except one, needless to say we took advantage of that.
once in the grounds and up next to the factory (which is bigger than i expected), finding a way inside turned out to be relatively easy. I was sorry to see in certain areas this place had been trashed, in the office for instance paperwork and files thrown all over and the furniture thrown from the windows into piles on the warehouse floor, people had pulled areas of the floor up around the factory to get at the wiring that contains copper, but that aside i did find it very interesting and got some good shots.

Short History:
The Clock House Brick Company Ltd was founded in 1933 to exploit a rich deposit of high-quality Weald Clay to the south of the Surrey village of Capel. It is a site for palentological and sedimentological research covering an area of 32.4 hectares. The impact on the site was discussed when Capel village was selected as a possible site for a thermal waste disposal site.
