Rustons Engineering CO Ltd (RECO) was founded in 1955. I believe the site in Huntingdon was the first ever RECO site built. RECO produced farming machinery and became quite successful. In 2011 the founder of RECO, Harold Ruston died from Motor Neurone Disease. I believe this was the cause of the closure of the site. RECO in St Neots has now closed as well but not been discovered by the vandals yet. Enjoy the pics!

Packaging Warehouse


The main factory building


The factory had an asbestos removal a few months back so that's why its so bare.




Entry & exit was a bit hard. Climbing in through a 2nd story window and climbing down to the first floor.


Hope you enjoyed the pics! :)
