    Post Sleaford Bass Maltings, Lincolnshire - January 2013


    Third and final site of out whistle stop tour in company with the splendid Skankypants and MrToby.

    I wont go into too much of the history as I know its been done a fair few times before.

    Never in all my days have I seen so much pigeon shit... to be fair had I not read previous reports I would have assumed that this was the UK's national reserve storage centre for emergency pigeon shit should overseas supplies become resticted.

    Definate highlight was the never ending staircases to the top of the tower which culminates with a naval portal type ladder up onto the roof from which you get a stunning view of the site.

    Cheers for looking.




















































    Thanks for looking.. cheer Mat
