    Nice report and great pics, visited here with ****** at the turn of the year, did you have to jam the door to the right of the teasel machine and crawl through? A right bloody mess I made of me new Yuletide jumper a present from my dear wife, It’ll never be fit to be seen again, There are some benefits from exploring that you wouldn’t imagine!

    I feel that this place is a look into times past, (Those of us that seen it are privileged) that it is being slowly robbed and destroyed is not only shameful but a reflection on what we as a whole consider worth keeping

    Default Very evocative


    It's as if people just downed tools one day and never went back.
