    Default Karro Foods – Haverhill – May 2018

    The Explore

    So I passed this on the way elsewhere and failed at that so headed back here.

    Now this only half of the site, the other half is the opposite side of the road and the two are joined by a conveyor that goes over the road. It is worth keeping an eye on this place if you live that way as it looks like they are preparing the larger side for closure too.

    Access to the site was easy albeit over a gate covered with Anti-climb paint. Always carry baby wipes kids. The building is in the middle of a heavy strip although there’s enough left to see what went on there.

    Not really that interesting but thought I’d report it to save others wasting time

    The externals looked very promising









    Now bearing in mind they killed and chopped up animals for food here this sign mad me chuckle a little



    Care and respect right before you chop them up…..

    The inside was full of “lanes” that the animals would have been herded in as they made their ways to our dinner plates.























    Lunchtime!





    The Conveyor that ran over the road has been ripped out and the other end blocked off stopping access to the other side.





    Everyone needs engineers











    I’ll finish up with some of the signage left
