    Default Manningtree/brantham factories (REVISIT)

    I recently re-visited Manningtree/Brantham factories with my new camera, my first post was quick and I only had a phone camera you can read the post here :

    Anyway, I hope you enjoy these pictures alot more!

    My buddy chow, on top of the first building from the road, Chalkwell, in the distance you can see the start of the rest of the factories.

    I love this shot, the path you can see is the one leading from the railway bridge you pass under.

    This is the top floor of the building that you can see in the distance from the photo ontop of chalkwell ( first photo)
    This room is amazing, the ceiling is so high and nature is really taking over, you can even find old books/records.

    This has to be my favourate room, Nature has completely taken over, plants everwhere, trees growing through the floors, roots ripping up the tiles, really has a nice feel to it!

    Thankyou for reading! hope you enjoyed,
    Off topic slightly but recentley Brantham fireworks was on, so I force my girlfriend to climb to the top of the Chalkwell building roof with me to watch them, reluctant at first, however she loved it when she was up there, nothing better than seeing crowds of people all crammed together trying to see over eachothers heads, and your up on the rooftops with the most amazing view!

    The thing that you can't work out what it is looks like a war memorial probably for all the people from the factories who were killed but someone has nicked the bronze plaques off it.
