    Default Merrydown Ciders and Wines April '09


    Having seen 'The Monk's report on this place ( http://www.derelictplaces.co.uk/main...350#post106350 ), I was interested to look around it myself. I had seen it a few times when it was in use but its one of those sites you don't acknowledge until the fence appears!

    Much of the site was stripped out, including an entire roof that had been cut off - which i am guessing was the easiest way to hoist out the machinery.

    despite having been disused for upto 5 years, the garden at the front of the site still looked very lively, and rather oddly the dozens of goldfish were still happily swimming round in a murky green pond!

    One of my very few solo explores, enjoyed it as much as I thought I would.

    Nice work mr.B. To save those fish you should convert your mum's old car into a pond or fishtank. I think it'd work quite well
