Quick Note: So for quite a few years I've been loyal to posting content on oblivionstate but decided it was time to come over to 28DL and start posting photos. Its been a while since I've done a full report, however, the beginning of this year was pretty crazy, managed to tick some decent locations from the list such as Lotus Manor and Denbigh Asylum so some reports should eventually be posted. Anyway on with the paint factory...

Dulux Paint Factory June 2018
Our Visit: After seeing a few reports on this place we decided to do some research and head over there before it possibly became inaccessible. We headed to the site one afternoon and after gaining access, we found ourselves slowly moving through the extensive network of pipes, buildings and silos. Everything in the site had power, a deep hum surrounded us as we walked through the various buildings. The vast majority of the machinery is still inside but looks as if they are decommissioning and selling most of it off. The site is a mix between massive warehouses, productions lines and other workshops full of machinery. We eventually came to a room full of computers all switched on and what looked like walkie-talkie batteries on charge. It felt like it was still in use and ready for workers to come in almost as if the place was just disused rather than fully abandoned. Throughout our visit, we prepared ourselves for security to turn the corner any minute, but nothing... We decided to head to the roof overlooking the security hut to check out the situation, I'm glad we did, 2 land rovers with dogs in the back. We decided then that it was probably time to make our exit. (On a quick side note the building next to the security hut is odd, one half is in mint condition, whilst the other half is in a much worse condition, however, if you like peeling walls, and uneven floors, it's worth checking out). After a decent 4hours taking photographs undisturbed, we clearly thought no one would be about now, however, as we turned the corner we spotted a car and a high vis walking towards us, damn we've been busted! Turns out it was just a guy shooting the pigeons as part of pest control for the site. He didn't seem fussed about us taking photos, so we said hello and carried on towards our exit. Also as mentioned in other reports, watch out for those automatic forklifts doors, we managed to set one off, not helpful when you're trying to be sneaky!

On our drive back out, we noticed a Dulux lorry turn the corner and down the road the site is located. We did some searching online and apparently, the research and development team will continue to remain on the site for the next couple of years.
