So I've heard a lot about this place and decided to have a look.

Abandoned soil factory in Redhill.

This is the first factory I've visited, it was very wet, muddy and pretty trashed. There were quite a few kids hanging around.

This was a bit of a sketchy explore as you'd expect from an abandoned factory, full of heavy metal stairs and machinery.

We did go up a few of the stairs but stuck to the sides and held the rails, although the kids that were there used it as a climbing frame!! Once we climbed to the top the view was amazing.

There's another 2 buildings to the side that we checked out as well.
One of them had been burnt down in parts but the other was ok, we found a bar in there to.

Hope you like the pictures!

Not done a factory yet (that I remember). This one looks pretty fun, loads of gantries and walkways to scramble around. Would make an excellent filming location too!

Some decent shots there. Someone on here said last year it was due for demolition but there doesn't seem to be any sign of that?

Btw, your title should be "Fullers Earthworks, Redhill"

I was told about 6 months ago buy a demo team that it was coming down, probably another housing idea that will never come to fruition

The Copyhold Works (Fullers Earth) site was acquired by Evonik (previously Laporte) in 1954 and, according to the land registry, it’s still owned by them.

The site has been named by the council as a “Potential Reserve Urban Extension Site” but there are no planning applications for development or demolition.

There was a planning application to demolish it and build a power station in the mid nineties, but it was refused.

Wow! I did this eight years ago and it certainly shows how long ago it was! Externally; its still pretty cool, but generally fucked. Look at the state of the poor thing. Thanks for the update!
thanks, I wish I was into this years ago. Feel like I've missed out on loads of great places!

It's always the case really, there is always something you missed no matter what time you got into it. Good new stuff will always comes along, just gotta sit tight and wait for whatever it is.
