Visited with UkMayhem and Speed.

What a gorgeous day to visit! Sunshine always works well with Nikons it seems so I was quite pleased with the results I got photography wise. My 10-20 broke AGAIN half way through this explore and there was no Vivo to blame this time. Sigma are "apparently" sending a new one....eventually.

There's not a lot more I can add to this report as UkMayhem pretty much covered the history of the site in his report here. I'd urge anyone to go and have a look at this place because it was such a big company and one that has suffered hard in the whole "let's remove industry out of Britain" thang. Apparently, there used to be around 100 chimneys here:eek:

Here's the pics. Sorry they are massive but I'm on the college computers and everything is weird and different:confused:

Re: London Brick Company, Bedford 12/10/08 REPORT

I was a bit unsure of this place to start with but it turned out to be really nice. The weather was great and made for some awsome pics. The best bits were the retro 'fletchers' style locker rooms, tomatoes growing on the roof of the kilns and the couple of 'mature' explorers we bumped into who totaly 'got' what we were doing and why we were doing it for once!

Best of all we just had a laugh!
