    Default Butterley Engineering - Oct 19


    Butterly Engineering as Im sure you know is essentially a big empty building, so how the hell have I ended up with so many pics?

    Well its quite Photogenic thats why







    I did 2 visits here last year but had a camera issue & lost all my pics from the first visit so a revisit was always on the cards.

    Step up @HughieD to join me on a miserable day for said revisit. Really handy actually as I can be lazy & tell you all the history you can possibly want can be found here ;)

    So Ill just bombard you with the pictures.



































    Thanks For Looking
    What the hell am I doing, I mean really at my age!

    Image five for me - very nicely framed and focused. Very good set of images.

    Butterley is interesting, there are a few bits and pieces tucked away in dark corners - seems like they make an effort to re-seal the buildings from time to time though.

    Not sure, I went about 8 months apart last year & nothing had changed, though the smaller buildings appear to be pretty well sealed

    Took me a couple of attempts, and I heard the offices and stores were sealed after I'd been. Luck of the draw I guess…
