The Explore
Not a bad one for a cold Sunday morning, despite climbing through a window and falling straight through a shelf behind it all was well.. Downstair was nothing special with a few bits and bobs still about but the upstairs office areas were quite decent and some nice decay and peeling paint in the canteen areas as well. All in all not a bad place for an hour or so wander

The History
Struggling to find much detailed history, about the only thing I could find was similar to another report on here that the company was originally founded in the 1920s but at a different site. They made castings for lots of car manufacturers with evidence of these castings still laying about all over the place and some hung on a display piece in the reception area.

Nice report and an interesting location - I like the Yukka plants - they give absolutely no fucks that no one has watered them since the place was abandoned. Just keeping on trying to make the reception look classy.
