Did a night time visit of the klinger 4 days again and all so took some day time photos about 4 months ago sorry for the lack of post but been busy with work and social stuff. Here's a little bit of history....


Klinger is an Austrian manufacturer for valves and borosilicate gauge glasses. In 1936, they expanded their production facilities to England and opened this factory in Sidcup. This factory was built in 1937 to the designs of Wallis Gilbert and partners for Richard Klinger Ltd. The Klinger company was founded in Austria in 1893 and made gaskets for engines and hydraulic pipelines and also water level gauges and valves. This building was built in the latest Modern style of architecture. The building originally had water tanks at the top of the central tower. There was a second floor company flat intended for visiting Austrian executives, offices on the first floor, cutting shop and tool room on the ground floor and storage for rubber, asbestos, chemicals and consumable items in the basement.

The building has been derelict for many years now and a planning application for an IKEA store has been withdrawn so it currently sits in limbo with palisade fencing around the perimeter. The majority of the building is in a serious state of decay and hasn't been helped by 2 fires from earlier in the year.
