The Explore
After visiting Lostock power station this was actually a really relaxed explore with lots of different types of building to look around, theres warehouses, offices, workshops and a huge industrial area at the back.

The History
Originally owned by Price's Patent Candle Company. In 1853, Palm oil was brought into Liverpool and so the company needed a site to use the palm oil closer to Liverpool than taking it to London by boat. The company build what is now Bromborough Pool village and opened a new factory in Bromborough. The site employed around 115 people and was part of the Uniqema acquisition in 2006.

In 2008, the business had a turnover of £45.3m and made a £2.1m operating profit. This was flattered by favourable glycerine pricing and the site made a loss in the final quarter of 2008 which has worsened into 2009, this poor performance eventually lead to the closure of the site.

Thanks Acid, yeah there have been loads of metal fairies in there. Noticed some reports from a few months back and there's a huge difference now we're they have ripped all the ceilings out and floors up to get the cables out. Still plenty left for them though!!
