Well today I decide to go some where easy get in out and no securty bothering me. So I it set of from home to Whetstone and I had fab time expolring the building just shame the amount of tagging in the building. Only downside was the fact building was bit ugly too look at from outside so 60s look.
Bit History [
The site of the Whittle factory became the English Electric Company (Later GEC) a significant part of several Nuclear power stations were made there in the 1960s and 70s. English Electric was one of the largest Engineering Companies in the Leicester area, employing thousands of workers and training hundreds of apprentices each year. At one point more than 4,000 workers had to be shipped in from Middlesex to help labour shortages and many settled permanently causing a boom in the late 60s./CENTER]
