    Default Valley Foundry


    Visited this with HughieDW a few weeks back & it was the first of many explores that day.
    And what a great start it was.
    This is an old steel casting foundry from what I can gather mainly producing railings, bench ends & the like.
    It was an excellent mooch & was right up my street. I was surprised at the amount of remaining stuff & lack of general vandalism.
    Thanks to Mikeymutt for a bit of intel here too.
    Its a bit pic heavy cos I liked it here ;-)

    I can't help but think some of those patterns were for large machine parts - lathes, pedestal drills etc.
    Are the shelves made from WW2 stretchers from during The Blitz?

    Might be old and empty in there but it's a very interesting site. The patterns are especially good.
    Full of meaty goodness.

    Nice one. A lot of moulds still around particularly the nice ornate fencing IMG0752.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.
