    Arrow Hepworth Refractory ,Loxley, Sheffield March '09


    Loxley Refractory, a large, derelict factory outside Sheffield is empty today. Two security will pass us later, and not even notice we are on the same footpath as them, but at the moment, the site is empty.
    It made heat resitant bricks, amongst other things, and after a time was used by an airsoft group. Even they have gone, and all that is left is us, and bits of metal banging in the wind. On with the snaps.

    Superb photos as always, Box. :)

    Excellent pics, like the indoor jungle with the trees in the middle of the buiding. Like all the pics though, you have some excellent shots. Good to see the lathe and the lockers still there. This is another place me and Mendo will have to have a look at.

    Funnily enough, we drove past here tonight on the way back from the Derwent Dams where we'd spent a good few hours with my little one.

    Excellent work mate, love the pics.

    Cheers,

    :) Sal
