History....well not much that i can find online & going off the other reports from various forums

Hargraves Meat processing facility has occupied this site since the 1940"s right through until 2001 when it closed following the Foot & mouth epedemic er ..........:confused:

Solo mooch on way way up to Northumberland for a holiday via Derp Cities, i past this place & thought it"d be rude not to call in. It"s well F@cked too say the least but going off old reports i"ve looked at today, nothing much has actually changed it seems. It"s basically trashed wall to wall & roofs as well, helped along the way with numerous fires. It"s very sketchy in places obviously, made more so when i was there by some angry faced Metal Fairies (without a transit van ironically) wandering about the place collecting their necter ;) There"s so much loose metal & broken glass around it"s bloody hard to be stealthy, & looking at what steels left my camera etc would certainly make them more money for less work. Anyway i managed to get my pics without incident until i went arse over tit outside the old substation at the rear & they popped up and headed my way, cue GTFO

Most of the building is not worth many a pic, same old same, trashed offices (although the views from some of the window frames look interesting....well looking past Middlesborough anyway :) trashed floor areas all over the lower sections until you come into the concrete stalls for the animals awaiting slaughter & you remember what went on here. Which is the only parts of interest TBH. And as i"ve never been inside an Abbatoir, there"s some right scary looking processing machines, & some more suited to ripping trees down at the roadside than i would have thought would be involved in meat production (i suppose i ought to Youtube it really) these also seem not to have changed from previous reports which is weird as it seems to be one of the few things not weighed in.....yet.

Anyway babble over :thumb

Haha. I think I remember seeing this when I was last in Boro. Not been over that way in a while though.
I was looking for some food TBH then found that old cinema The crown but no entry & came back, time to kill it seems before i called back to Easington Colliery then Sunderland. If only i could get motivated lol

Came out well mate didn't realise you had lit it up until you said!
Yeah mate most of the pics are lit up, the warehouse bits & the processing end was in the dark, just ironic it was a sunny day and reflecting off the white walls through the smashed off doors etc...everything you don"t need. i prefer total darkness TBH more balanced
