Hardly worth posting this & was hardly worth photographing which is kinda why Im posting!
I didnt think it worth getting the camera out so all these were phone pics (on a fairly old iphone) so just wanting to see opinions on them really.



As prev reports I really cant find any history on this place, other than it was a "tacky goods" import business.. Oh & its completely nackered.

We firstly entered the neighbouring Kingfield Heath building to be met by some unsavoury looking characters so one quick snap in here was all I got



we left this unit sharply & headed in next door, the access was fun but as all prev reports suggest its a bit of a death trap in there with floors & staircases collapsing everywhere





Looking back to the Kingfield building



Sales Office







The stairs had some lovely tiling at one point!









Clock machine remains





Thanks For looking
