Report - Coltran, Rotherham march 2017

A reccy by myself and @Toblerone

Tried to find out the history as much as possible on this one

The building as far as I can find out dates back to 1920's and was origionaly a bakery, and also smoked meats.
There is a room ontop of the roof where me and Toblerone feared for our life's as (no joke) we genuinely got attacked by pidgeons
This room I have found was the main smoke room for smoking meat.

The late 1980 to 2010 it became "Coltran" who designed and fabricated various kitchen ware etc.
The business coltran went into liquidation in 2010. Leaving what remains to its present day,

There is a canal that runs along the back of the building, and supplies and products were moved by barge on the canal (info from john Cullingham, who I stumbled upon via Facebook. He was the factory's site electrician for 20 years)


The visit
So me and Toblerone got a tip off about this one and after searching the web wasn't really able to find too much on this as far as report or pictures go,
So we went for a reccy one night this week.
After looking for a way to even get to the building for nearly 30 mins
We wingled our way down to the site,
Gaining entrance wasn't too difficult and we were inside in around 20 mins later.
No machinery was left inside but there is a room that appears to be left with tons of screws and parts that just looks like they walked straight out
And
The all famous random 1 shoe left in the middle of a room .

On the roof it was nice to see a complete non destroyed lift house, and altho there is no electricity to the place, all the manual control override for the lift are still there so could be used

We weren't able to access the basement were the loading room is to the canal due to a big steel door that looked recent in comparison to the rest of the building.

Some pics are not too great as were only taken on iPhone,
But do have some digital camera pics in the mix too

Was taking all our cam equipment as it was only a reccy, we will revisit here soon, and hopefully with more info too.
