    Unhappy Lucas/Denso Birmingham (new and improved)


    Lucas have been at this site since the 40's (bw5). Check out Lucas Memories website for more details or check my earlier posting for a brief history of this place. The following pics are before and after the pikeys took the site over. Thankfully they've now gone and in less than 3 weeks the police will be taking over the place for training purposes.

    I've seen something similar at a local abandoned hotel. Was such a good explore until the pilkeys arrived. Completely trashed the place. Even left some unpleasant surprises in rooms. Its such a shame they feel the need to do this to places. Might go and check out this place though, looks really interesting. :)

    Angry Blame the local paper


    Pikeys seem to turn up when the local paper runs an article on the place. This place was overrun with the buggers when the Birmingham Mail ran an item about the place being derelict for several years. IDIOTS. The place had been empty for less than 5 months. Denso was still clearing out the shop floor when the pikeys went in.:icon_evilDEATH TO PIKEY SCUMmad:

    Great pics - what a shame that some folks have to trash a site.

    I can remember when it was lucas's alternator and starter motor plant before they sold out

    used take aluminum castings for the alternators in there twice a week


    shame the pikeys have trashed the place mind you given the price of scrap I'm surprised they didnt wreck the place even more.the place I work has had several visits from our caravan dwekking chums as we shift scrap the last time they found the wagons, minus the aluminum tipper bodies and the load of steel swarf on a site that had been used by pikies
