    My grandpa used to work here but I haven't yet managed to venture in myself so it's wonderful to see photos of the inside. My dad tells me he used to bring all sorts of things home when the company was going to throw them away, including more bakelite telephones than they had rooms in the house for! I think I can guess where I get my hoarding nature from, haha.

    Great work. The pic of the old files is great.

    I love that with getting the old phones. :)

    Nice shots, this is a vast place with lots space. The whole sight around is so vast. The cranes are still in after nearly eight years, there are plans also strewn about the whole site. There are drums of lubricant still around. At least they have put a steel roof on so that the rain can't get in. It is all really sad and this building is groaning literally. Great shots, hope that somebody with sense and capital will buy and make it good again.

    Called in here at the weekend (been before, but thought i'd pop in as I was passing).

    Seems its all freshly boarded up now and the perimeter fence has been fixed although there were a couple of people strolling round the grounds looking for an in. Didn't bother looking as every window and door I could see had fresh new shiny boards up.
