    Default Anglo beef Processors


    I haven't been out much lately but meaning to check this place out for a while as its pretty local.

    Anglo Beef processors, was an abattoir up until 95 with more than 300,000 animals being slaughtered a year, it remained operational as a packing plant until 2005 when the doors were shut.
    There is an ongoing battle with local villagers trying to stop plans for a new rail freight terminal, & at the moment planning has been quashed!

    I explored on my own & I can report this place is grim!
    I mean very grim. You wouldn't expect a place like this to be pretty but with an air of death around, & a seemingly endless maze of pitch black rooms it had me on edge, not to mention what lays in the upper floors!!!

    There's a lot of pics but you'll have to look on to see what I mean.

    Starting at the far end there is water treatment plants/

    I entered the main plant through typical cattle sheds, these have a lot of paperwork & a few other interesting bits left inside.

    Directly off the sheds you enter a tiled room which soon becomes apparent is the buiseness end of things!

    Moving on into the maze of processing rooms, all pretty much the same with a few interesting bits & bobs, particularly a lot of signage left as it seems they took H & s very seriously!

    Back outside I headed over to the maintenance shop, this interested me being in the trade there was a lot of bits left in here.

    Feeling pleased with myself I proceeded straight to McDonalds for lunch, the irony of which only set in once I was tucking in.

    Yep there's nothing pleasant about slaughterhouses, or humane for that matter, whatever the stunner instructions say!

    Interesting pictures. I wondered what colour was your hard hat? As a non-vegetarian I found it not too bad.

    Decent - I thought the one in Bathgate was the only closed ABP facility in the UK but I guess I was wrong!

    If we eat meat, the beasts bred to supply this meat have to be slaughtered. Far better in a well regulated UK slaughter house, than being pole axed and having their throats cut in some dirty, far off continental backwater. I come from a farming background and experienced many slaughter houses dealing with our stock over the years. Back in those days I never saw any slaughter men mistreating our animals, far from it; if one eats meat, an animal must die to provide same!
