Greetings dear viewer.

A quick follow-up to my previous report
(and, indeed, quite a few other peoples good reports ;))

If you don't know this place - do take a look at the link above - there is a lot more to see :thumb

Took a little trip back here today.

The place still has much to offer, with may great features and finds.

Sadly, however, it is being 'pikeyed' for its metals



Bearings are being actively stripped for their brass and phosphorebronze, there are lineshafts pulled down, with their cast iron wheels smashed off.

There were still pikey tools, and pikeys lunch around (Polish Noodles) and piles of bearing shells outside where the bearing linings have been prized out.

Machinery has been damaged where the metalwork has been smashed from woodwork.

Thankfully such gems as the samples are still intact:

As I was leaving some local kids were building a BMX ramp around the side and discussing how many more bricks need to come out of the entrance hole to get their bikes inside

It's time to go public on this one

It might also be time to shame the owners into a better lockdown - they must know what is happening.

As I said at the beginning, this is only a quick snapshot -

I was wondering what the status of this place was a couple of days back, I fancied factoring it into a westwards trip I have planned but I think it'll be too far to go in a day....unless of course the other sites are big fat fails.

Fair play on going public, as you say it's about time something was done about this. I've been in contact in the past with the princess trust who are trying to help secure it's future but they can only do 'so much' themselves.

Suppose I can put some photos up now too then :D

TBH putting it public was a bit risky - but the press article and the responses from the developer are pretty good so hopefully the place may be given a chance.
