    Default Fullers Earth Works- June 2017


    I have just visited Fullers Earth Works in Redhill for the third time. I noticed that over the past few months many things have changed, notably there being more missing floor panels. However, this seems to have been deliberately caused by people trying to topple the place.

    To begin with here are some photos of the Union's leisure buildings:





    In this building you can see where there would have been a bar:





    Most of the dining and kitchen area of the second building has been burnt out and as you can see in these photos, nature has taken over much of the building.







    Some signs still survive:



    I believe this is the only door still attached to its hinges:



    Here are some photos of the main factory:



    These are the two largest towers at fullers:



    You can see that soil would have been passed down here:



    Here is another one:



    This photo shows the underneath of the largest vat container.





    This shows one of the missing platforms:



    The main control room has recently collapsed in:



    Here are some of the views from the top of the towers:












    Unfortunately, due to its old age and people deliberately trying to trash it, Fullers may not be around much longer before it is either demolished or fatally dangerous to visit... so go and see it while you still can! (Be very cautious)

    That's a very good post. See, it wasn't difficult to post pictures. Nice camera angles as well.

    It keeps getting smaller this place every time they decide to do an asbestos strip, one day it will just be a conveyor belt!

    I liked it here, thanks for the update and climbing about for the pics!

    This place was scary enough with all the kids running around it when there were floors! Looks seriously sketchy now...
