** This explore was done before the Coronavirus Lockdown took effect **
Goldcrest Business Park has been home to a number of different businesses over the years; Whitminster International, Redler Limited, Klenzeen Limited and, most recently, the Stroud Metal Company. From what I can work out, the whole place has been empty for a number of years with the exception of the Stroud Metal Company, who only moved out back in July 2019. The site appears to be split into different sections, with the older factory buildings and warehouses at the back completely trashed, gutted, emptied and grafettied to high Heaven (Who doesn't love a derpy factory though right...?!) Whilst the newer offices at the front of the site and the slightly newer looking factory buildings that once homed the Stroud Metal Company seem relatively untouched. Below shows the two halves;
There is also a third section;
Which I couldn't get access too, but appears from the front to be relatively new. However peering through the chained up gates suggests it's been empty for a while;
The view from the main road;
With Stroud Metal Company now gone too, the whole site is deserted and, huge!
A lovely relaxed bimble around with the girlfriend, nothing to report, sadly. Although have since spoken to a lad who said he tried about a week after we did, and was confronted with security, guard dogs and 3 vans in the car park, so.. who knows.
One of the funniest things we found was some postcards from a chap named Robert who used to work for Stroud Metal Company.
^ Everyday he was on his biatch... Lucky Robert is all I can say!
Hopefully some of you will find this interesting... whatever it is! (Excuse my naivety and please enlighten?)
The derpy, ruined factory side; (With some nice graffiti, it has to be said!)
