    Default Other Bits 'n' Pieces from Pianoforte Jan 2015


    I like playing tourguide occasionally, and equally love the Pianoforte site in Roade near Northampton so I was more than happy to tag along when Landie man and co suggested they wanted to go. I didn't take any new photos in the rusty rooms but did have a poke around the first part of the site I did nearly four years ago now and amazingly it has remained almost completely unchanged apart from the slightly more dodgy roof....

    Pianoforte Supplies LTD manufactured parts for Pianofortes (as the name suggests) and their large factory closed in around 1980. Half of the site was re-opened for the manufacture of car trim and interior parts but this also closed back in 2011 - but as of yet it looks to be well sealed and has more CCTV and alarms dotted around the outside than you can shake a stick at.



























    Thanks for looking, more here https://www.flickr.com/photos/mookie...7650083631310/ :p
