I dont normally post these repetitive reports any more but this place really deserves more coverage. Its a really great factory explore the likes of which i thought would be extinct by now, it was so good i went all the way to Doncaster twice!

Thanks to @The Amateur Wanderer (who i must say is probably the most impressive new explorer ive noticed in ages) for properly bringing it to my attention. Ive said some quite harsh things about the reports from 2012, probably too harsh really but looking back at them they are just such a narrow snap shot of the place, more or less all parts are covered but none of them go anywhere near showing the true extent of the place. The workshop is amazing today and from the two photos i could find of it previously (come on i mean two photos from in there wtf??!!) it looked even more mint and even more crammed with stuff back then. The main production line is just vast, really deceptive to walk down as it just keeps going and going.. and the signs, fuck me ive never been anywhere with so many cool signs everywhere you look. Stunning!

The place is looking a tad trashed nowadays which is a shame, id loved to have seen it when it was first found but that will teach me to rely on others to explore for me. Here just a few photos to tempt you to go have a look before it gets worse.

Never did get round to seeing this - neighbouring Thorpe Marsh was always the bigger draw for me. Looks like the kind of place I could spend a few hours in though. Maybe next time I'm over that way!
