    Post Shredded Wheat Factory


    The Shredded Wheat Factory opened in 1926 and closed in 2008. Large storage sheds were built around the factory but they have since been demolished leaving the factory standing in a large area of wasteland. Tesco submitted plans for redevelopment but they were rejected in January 2012.
































































    Thanks for looking,

    Rubex

    I enjoyed that Rubex, great pics. I remember a friend of mine used to service some machines there and always came back with loads of boxes of cereals etc that he bought from the staff shop.

    That looked like a good wholesome explore there Rubex, with a bit of a rough edge ;-)

    Two thumbs up from me Rubex! Loving that shot of the soggy factory floor with all the peeling paint :p
    No one ever wins. No one finally loses, except the dead. Under the sun they rot together with absolute biological equality.
