    Default Cults Hill Brick Works, near Cupar, April 08


    A massive explore....this site just keeps on unfolding as you go. Loads of machinery, chutes, hoppers, stairs, cog wheels, winches and stuff. Gonna have to go back for another explore as there was so much to see.

    Ahh, music to my ears!
    That is an incredible site. Love those hoppers and the conveyor belt. I see you've got yourself a contender for the 'ugly chair comp' thread.
    Excellent stuff. Look forward to seeing more when you return. :)

    I had a quick look around the lime side of this place today. It looks like I'll have to set a whole day aside for a proper look.

    Those big holes are dangerous, but very interesting.
