    Sounds interesting. I can only assume that it was a nice explore.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.

    I explored my first derelict building in Leeds during the summer of 1955 - Dad was on business, I was a bored 12 year old so I wandered into a nearby derelict building (damaged during the air raid of 14/14 March 1941; which I found out much, much later, when I got a real interest in places like that when I was 19 and away at Uni). Places were left full of stuff and remained so until demolition back then.

    Since the onset of the internet I have seen many places cleared out after appearing on all sorts of public sites. Theft in some cases, but in the vast majority, by the legal owners of the factory in question. Sadly our beloved forums are an illustrated catalogue for the shite bastards of this world and this is the reason I have only ever taken the odd image that allows me to find out more about a machine/object. Many factories etc are left 'abandoned' because of legal problems in the winding up procedures, however it is only the monetary value that is important - so if the executors/solicitors perceive that valuable machinery make go 'walkies' or be vandalised, then they turn it into cash before this happens and protect the estate value and/or the clients.

    Wow that must have been amazing exploring during the 50's and pretty dangerous too with unexploded bombs often about! I did my first explore a bit later in 1977, but as you would know there were a few bomb sites still around London in the 70's. I agree that the double edged sword of the internet has made it much easier for people to take their pickings from places. During the 80's and 90's I often bumped into metal thieves inside old buildings but places never seemed to have security then either. These older places with original remnants are becoming harder to find, eventually one day I guess they will either all be redeveloped or gone completely and exploring will have a different meaning. Sadly, somehow I don't think I will be interested then.
