    Totally love the wooden parts box and the various bits of machinery. I really like your shot of the pigeons.
    Another good find, ermi. :)

    hi,
    i see that you say that the cws had a printing works here more recently, are they still the
    current owner of the site ?. Woolworths on Sankey Street have for many years been the
    occupant of the shop which was part of the site back in the 1800's. Since they have now gone
    i was wondering if the whole site might be demolished,
    great photos

    I've not heard anything on the demoltion front, the old Woolworths store is on a main shopping street so would be shocked if that goes as for CWS a few locals have told me they had the site for a while but I haven't got any other info on it.

    Very nice shots Ermi,:)
    And a dreadful thing from the cliff did spring. And its wild bark thrilled around. His eyes had the glow of the fires below. Twas the form of the Spectre Hound. 'Ha' yer fa'r got a dickey, bor?' 'Yis, an' he want a fule ter roide 'im, will yew cum?'

    It looks like the pigeons in your photo have been the sole occupants for many years.
    There is a notice attached to the building from the local council, which mentions the
    cws printing works, i would have thought that the council would be able to find out
    who owns the property, in fact it seems a little strange that they donít know already.
    I would have thought that such a large building in the middle of the town would attract
    a certain curiosity from the local authorities.

    Looks pretty interesting, but you could use a tripod.

    In my experience that's typical of Wallyton Borough Council
