Visited here with my usual two exploring friends. We were in the area and I remember Hughie D's report on it and thought it looked quite nice. Even though it's just some old shells that remain of the old wagon works and an old small office block which is trashed to hell. But even though it is like that there was something nice about it. With nature taking over the sheds nicely and some nice graffiti about, it makes a nice relaxed wander. Having a look for history is a bit of a pain, but found some on a Grace's guide. The company was established in 1880 by Andrew Nelson, then registered in 1893. It specialised in railway and tramway rolling stock. And in 1914 employed 16,000 people. They were based in Glasgow as Hurst, Nelson and Co and had depots at Bridgend, Swansea and Chesterfield. They also had offices in Glasgow, London and Manchester. The works here shut down in the eighties.
