    Default Train Depot Neath


    Well here goes my first report!

    I came across this place while travelling on the bus and could tell by its exterior that it hadn't been in use for a good while. I managed to wait until the builders had gone as I believe this place is up for auction, however I did manage to get myself caught by their security guard, just lucky he was nice and let me go without any trouble!

    At first this building was the old Neath Train Depot, but has since been discontinued and most recently was used as a working mens club and some sort of factory, unfortunately details on the factory have been hard to find, but I shall be looking for information on this building in the library as part of a video report I plan on doing.



    The pigeons sure do own the building though, and the sh*t they have left is unbelievable, I did try to leave as much as possible out but some parts were completely covered.

    Surprisingly good condition I have to admit. The doors I used were all open too, the ones that weren't were all full of asbestos, but still had a good hour or so to soak in the glory of the building.

    I did read that it was some sort of Factory, so it could well have been Remploy, I am going to be in the Library later today finding out information, anything I find I will upload, thanks very much!
