    Default A well known Birmingham Car Factory...


    Had a solo look around here recently, Best not mentioning the name so it wont crop up in google etc. But I'm sure we all know where this is and the circumstances of its closure. So theres not any real need to mention it. The publicity surrounding this location is to the extent that I wont be in a rush to post these on IB at the moment, Though I doubtless will in the future.

    I was suprised at how much was left considering how long demolition has been going on for. There is still a significant amount that I havent seen but I was able to get around all parts relatively unhindered seeing those most at risk of imminent demolition.

    Good pics reaperman. Brilliant. Did you go in the underground part? they were built in case the place was bombed in the war, so production could carry on underground. will you be going back?

    Excellent pictures again. Thank you for sharing. :D

    Hi Bishop

    I'm thinking that if I was travelling a fair distance to a site I would rather go with a wee bit of knoweledge of what access is like.

    Is this not part and parcel of reports if not is there an area we can designate to that sort of thing.

    What I can say about security it that there are security men in the gatehouse 24 hours a day and they do patrol. There is CCTV on site and demolition workers on site 7 days a week.

    As Bishop and Krela said lets keep the details to PM's,

    Don't be put off though - there are at least three fairly easy ways of getting in unseen, none of which require difficult climbing or tunnelling. You've just got to use your initiative a bit...
