    Default Chesterfield Cylinders Ltd


    LOCATION: Chesterfield

    STATUS: Being demolished... get there quick!


    DESCRIPTION: Excellent example of what the blokes at work refer to as a "real factory" The site is comprised of two steel buildings, each with good examples of overhead cranes from the 1940's. Any explorer who lusts for ladders and gantrys will cream themselves over the place. Good 1940's sub station with nice tiled walls. The walls are decorated with graffiti from a by-gone age, and pin ups from the days before razors!

    SECURITY: Two jipsy blokes salvaging the place for scrap... watch them they look a bit shifty

    GET THERE QUICK, IT'S AWESOME AND IT'S ON BORROWED TIME!!

    pics soon.
