    Default J.H. Weatherby's Falcon Works, Stoke-on-Trent May '15


    A visit to this place has been a loooooong time coming for me. It first foiled me when I turned up in 2011 and found it sealed, and again a couple of years after that the same story sadly repeated itself. On something of a fail day around Stoke on the first leg of mine and Landie Man's big northern trip this was our only success and it was a sweet one.

    Heavily decayed, bashed and trashed but still ridiculously photogenic, by far the best site left in Stoke in my opinion. It's just such a shame that the Grade II listed bottle kiln collapsed of it's own accord due to no maintenance work a couple of years ago.

    The site has been around forever with all the histories taken care of before so here are some photos. I really, really enjoyed my time here, its the kind of location and level of dereliction I love to shoot.
