    Ayup, The attic was my fave place in here, the light was excellent. If I'm honest we weren't really allowed up there either lol. Do you have any idea what the room 3rd from last in my pics was used for? the one with all the pics on the far wall?

    Good selection of shots, they've cleared lots of Hunter welly and Tredaire underlay-related stuff out of the buildings in the past year or two, and last time I went past I spotted a used car lot at the side of the building (ironically!)

    Whilst up in Scotland on our way to do a collection whilst heading back homeward bound I spotted this hulking great lump of a factory off in the distance and knew immediately that we'd have to come back to it after getting the work done. From the road it looked very inviting and after some quick consulting with the lord of knowledge that is Google I quickly found what it once was.

    Hi All A nice little solo trip to this mine south of Bristol, getting out of the heat of the day and in to the cool. Sandford Levvy is a horizontal adit. 450m long, running south into the hill. Two crossroads provide short but interesting detours and some difficult climbing in excavated upward extensions, In 1830, a Mr. Webster, dug the adit in an attempt to locate a worthwhile ore body. A find of galena was reported and small veins of blende can still be found. The above info is from...
