    Arrow Merrydown Cider Factory September 2009


    Visited this place with Mr Bones. It was interesting for me not just because it's an explore but also because I do like my cider...you may not see me touch alcohol outside of my home but that's not because I'm teetotal. :p I was told that this place had closed down because production had been moved to the Netherlands.

    The old cider press. I loved this thing and it fascinated me.



    This piece of kit stretched up onto the floor above.






    It still had tiles! :D


    This really amused me.






    My brother had one of these you tuned in with the knob when I was a kid...you had to stay deathly still in one position as soon as you received the picture. :p




    Real stamping machines that you could actually use! :D


    Make your own stamps!






    To any urbexers out there who keep fish and have room in your hearts and ponds for more, please consider contacting the owner of this property and asking if you can take these poor buggers out of their filthy pool. I really did feel sorry for them. :(
