    Arrow Lichfield Maltings September 2009


    Visited this place with A Man Called Martyn and Cat Bones. Like Langley Maltings, it had those wonderful silos but for whatever reason they didn't sound as great as the ones at Langley.



    Don't know what the deal with these flies was but they were everywhere!


    Deja vu...looks quite like Langley.


    Part of the kiln..although given that there was a pentagram on one of the walls, my warped imagination likes to think that it was used for Satanic worship and that they put candles in the alcoves. :p






    Does anyone else look at this and remember an old Amiga game called Weird Dreams? :D For those that don't basically your character will get mowed down by a lawn mower if he doesn't pass the killer roses in time.


    I like the peeling paint.


    This really suxe.


    Planned lubrication. *Giggles.*

    Nice explore, I passed this place the other weekend, I had been on my way to a quarry full of old trucks but had an epic fail when I realised there were lots of large dogs roaming, I was on my way back into Lichfield and stopped off to look at the victorian water tower nearby, it was only when I was setting off that I noticed the Maltings, but had run out of time (frosty missus reception if you see what I mean!) There are some great photos on your photobucket site, there is certainly plenty to see. Good explore there, thanks for sharing!

    The revery alone will do, if bees are few.
