    Arrow Steetley Works,


    Went over to find Steetley Colliery, couldn't find it so phoned dad, he said its all gone. then found the old Steetley Works. The place is very large, derelict, but they do have a security guard, as i found out after taking my last pic. :icon_evil He was nice, just said it was private property, then directed me to the old main entrance.

    :) Sal



    ps, the pics are all from the outside, was going to go in the large main part of the buildings and the tower, but as security was watching me, had to go. but if anyones going up there, wouldn't mind going back. :)

    They made electric-arc furnaces, Kilns etc.... http://www.emnet.co.uk/baker-refractories which would mean there could be a fair bit of interesting stuff on the inside.

    EDIT, Along the Ceramics theme I think they also made bricks.
