    Default RNCF Holton Heath Laboratories April 2016


    As a secondary bonus explore after Linford Park myself and Harry headed half an hour west to see what was happening at the old Royal Navy Cordite Factory Labs in Holton Heath. No sooner had we parked up than we noticed another car with a pair of people who had a similar idea to us so we made our way in as a foursome before splitting.

    The place has sadly been absolutely destroyed by local numpties, but it's a place I had wanted to have a nose at for a long time so better late than never. It made for a pleasant peaceful wander for an hour before heading home just as the rain started.

    It's been seen and done a billion times before so here some photos...





















    The '5' balloon was the best piece of graffiti in the entire site and one of the most impressive single pieces I've seen anywhere.













    Thanks for looking, more photos here https://www.flickr.com/photos/mookie...57666229448510

    Nice photos as per your usual. I'm not too keen on graffiti on the walls of the buildings as it spoils the look even though its derelict but I was impressed with the 3D number 5.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.

    Nice mookster, looks like a nice wander especially as a bonus :)
    No one ever wins. No one finally loses, except the dead. Under the sun they rot together with absolute biological equality.
