    Myself and Joe had a look at this place in the dark a couple of weeks ago and returned last weekend with Dweeb & Laura to see it in daylight.

    Wellman produced large annealing furnaces for shipyards and other industry's, as well as having a Automotive and Industrial process division
    At the back of the site is the still active foundry whilst the old offices and 1950's Headquarters building on the road frontage is disused, inbetween the two the main works sheds are partly used for storage.

    Stunning images. The clarity, comp and use of colour are second to none.
