    Default Abattoir B June 2015


    Another from my trip to Scotland in June of 2015.

    I'd seen this reported on in the past and thought "I've never explored an abattoir and would rather like to. So this place was high on my list of targets north of the Border.

    The plant used to process around 500,000 lambs a year - around a third of Scotland's total.

    Originally due to be closed down on 10th April 2000 it got a stay of execution before finally closing in May of 2005.

    As often the site has suffered arson damage.

    On with the images.

    Zero reports, zero participation and then a PM asking for info tends to offend - I delete such PM's so don't waste your time.

    Some great pics there - I actually went vegetarian at the begining of the year and after seeing some of them pics - i think it was a good idea.

    Now that's something a little bit different. That is a great report I think
    I like to go where others fear to tread.

    I must ask the Question.Was the phase 'stay of execution' in the history a terrible pun or an accidental phrase?
