    Default The Valley Foundry - December 2018


    A rather apt explore after exploring an Iron Works earlier in the morning! After Stanton, Mookster and I headed for this little industrial Gem and met Mattdonut and James Smith inside.

    It was a bit of a trek through some undergrowth and tumbledown sheds full of all the old moulds and casts; but it was well worth it.

    The original company at this premises began manufacturing cast iron pipes back in the 1940s. By the 1980s; there was a management buy out and the company was renamed.

    It then closed again around two decades later and again; changed hands and was renamed; remaining in operation until it closed for the final time a few years ago.

    The whole site is split in two by a lovely iron railway bridge with the casting storage sheds and workshops on one side and the main foundry building on the other side of the bridge.



    It was a lovely treasure trove of an explore with plenty to see inside!
