    Wheeler's Scrap Yard, King Edward Quay, Colchester -September, 2008

    Before I went to the Bonded Warehouse a bit further to the east, I has a crafty peek at the old Scrap Yard, which you'll see is pretty must opposite the old Lighthouse Ship. I'd had me eye on this place -in particular the old House and Workshop, for years, but it had been sealed-up tight until recently. It's nice too see that the old Quayside beginning to be done-up, with some funky looking lighting etc.

    On with the pics..............

    Thanks

    Not so sure that the Workshop's been trashed -some people are just messy workers!

    Nice little explore there. I drive past it every day, never realised it was abandoned.

    Have you tried the warehouse at the other end of the quay? Looks good, but I could never find a way in.
