Nice set. Considering the size of this place it looks like you managed to get around and see quite a lot in here :thumb

looks nice, pictures are too big though, max 1024 on the longest edge
Sounds like you need a bigger screen :thumb

Yeah there's definitely more to see. Boiler house looks good but we got distracted by the Body Assembly section, Theres a fair bit more than shown in the photos but it was just too dark and we only had a led head torch!.

I think one of the two separate buildings behind the jobcenter is the medical room which is probably worth a look and there's tunnels/air raid shelters underneath that area (you can see the entrances by looking out the office window above where security's car is parked)

Security are obviously active and doing internal patrols checking doors etc and based on the ground floor of the offices. Also watch out for the sneaky little hidden IR Cameras in the Body Assembly section. They look very new, are live and are hidden behind beams above the fenced in walkways so hard to avoid and difficult to spot.

Fascinating explore. I worked at the body plant for 5 years during the 1970's and it was good to see it all again. Everything was done by hand then, there were no robots. All the presses look new, the ones in the plant when I was there were green and I think they dated back to when production started there in the 1930's. I expect it will all be demolished soon.
