I visited this place with xm657 last month and have only just got round to uploading the photo's.

This was a 'fall back' site as the planned explore turned out to be a no go.

I really wish I had seen this place earlier. Big site, loads of history and some very nice images to capture.

Please bear with me on some of the pic's as I've just got a new camera and the white balance is proving to be a bit tricky.

The main warehouse


Grand reception. The old wooden feature to the left is remnants of revolving doors


Waiting room (lovely)


Two external shots These reminded me of an old New York back alley (un-edited. I could not get the WB to get it right)



This one was potentially a good pic, but the contrast of light inside & outside made it very difficult.


Very nice relaxed explore and would urge anyone who likes old industry like this to get there before it's gone.
Cheers xm, I had sort of dismissed this one but I'm so glad I visited.
