I Have spent some interesting times on this site and some bad ones, the trouble with the bulldozer springs to mind.most recently i got caught by quick sand :eek: by the water pools on the site.I first came to the site in 1997 trying for an apprenticeship at the R.O.S.M factory, it was not long later that they had that well known fire on site.
the demo crew have gone for the time being.My encounter with the bulldozer put me off having a crack at the factory that had dealt with the depleated urainium as for a brief period this became easy to get in to.

all the tatted cable insulation just reminded me of eels for some reason

Shame it's all but flattened now, as of 2021. I was interested in the comments about the pools Martyn. The one nearest the lane (Cat & Kittens Lane) was, I imagine the first pool there used to run off warm water from a nearby building. The fishing club used to fish there. The pool on the east side of it was surrounded by brickwork when I was there. I don't know how deep it was. The overflow from there ran into the main pool then out through an overflow to a 'brook' under the lane. They're both overgrown now. I often wonder if there are still fish in the left hand pool. I can't imagine where the 'quicksand' would have been.
