I have wanted to get in here for AGES! It has always been sealed tight, or so it seemed... but this time there was a way in, well kind of... I was just thin enough!


Laycocks were silversmiths, making cutlery and flasks etc. They also made buffing wheels for the cutlery trade. I think they also made buffing soap too.

The works was very old and unchanged. Long narrow workshops with benches down the side. Under the benches the line shafts which powered the buffing wheels and grinders were still in place.

The works enterance was very grand, with a polished aggregate floor and a once ornate staircase.

The whole place is the filthyest skag den I have ever had the displeasure of being in... there were HUNDREDS of needles, soiled matresses and sleeping bags, "used" porn:eek: it was filth. It really put me off poking around for the usual deatils and artifacts I usually find, which is a shame because it was ripefor epic finds!
