    Myself, Fiendicus and Midnight came across this place at the end of the summer last year. It was former chemical works, which was later converted into a brick works. Judging by the signs of decay the brick production ceased long ago...

    Na the place was pretty decayed... but strangely the gas lines were new with electronic sensors on them monitoring the amount of gas going through them... i think i have some photos. Il add them on tonight. But definately a crackin place to visit ... Jonboy found this place was a stopover on our way to somewhere else. cant remember :p

    Would have been good to find out, but sadly the office they were in was locked up tight:(

    Very interesting looking place. Excellent pics. :)
    I agree with Reaps, those vials in the window are well cool. They look like something you might have in your bathroom with nice smellies in...well, I might...you might not, being a bloke. Okay, I'll shut up now!

    Looks like a cracking place, like all the colours in the pics, so many. Agree with Foxy about the vials, they look great, love the colours in those as well. Is it a large site, looks great.

    Cheers,
