Hello again. Well, i been sitting on this one for ages, simply because there was nothing to be found in the way of history . Got to shout out to @Nickindroy for a little lead :-) and also @Yorrick for the same. Still not found a great deal but at least i have something now.
HISTORY......
32045569971_434e316737_k.jpg


E Steiner Ltd
In the 1960s E. Steiner is listed as a manufacturer of ‘motor vehicle components’, notably 'Brivec' and 'Dingdong' car components, and the Company exhibited at the 1963 Motor Show at London's Earls Court.
The company was founded in 1908 by Ervin, known as Edwin, Steiner and by 1913 was trading from Corporation Street, Birmingham as a Cycle and Motor Accessories Agent. According to the 1911 Census Edwin Steiner was born in Austria in 1887. In 1992 the company dissolved .

The site is also reported to have been used by Scrivens opticians and also possibly DMP supplies.

The explore......

I had spotted this place a long time ago and always checked for access whenever i passed it, on this occasion the surrounding fence was down so i nipped in behind the buddleia to see what the score was. Access to the building was at the time a walk in, and as soon as i was inside i was dodging needles. A charity of some sort had left a load of clean ones and those little foil spoons at the access point so i was wary about it being full of smack heads .
Turned out it was totally deserted, of people and pretty much anything else , just an empty shell . The little boiler and the views from the rooftop were the only bits id recomend coming here for .
Anyway, on with the pics ......

Have been watching this place for a while, I initially tried hopping over the fence only to see it has been recently teared down. Allways the worst thing in urbex is finding the entry point. Doesnt seem like a problem with this explore.

Have thought of exploring since I wrote about Edwin Steiner on my old blog but couldn't find an entry point although others - purveyors of vandalism and drug users clearly had. Due to be redeveloped at some point. Having seen this report I'm much less inclined to attempt an explore!
