the explore
Another little throwback explore , today one is Redhill earth works , back in March 2018 the weekend my best mate stay down stayed down we did a number of explores ! One off them was also red hill factory

the explore was on the most easy explores we had done that weekend, we walked though the fence right down to the factory !

we heard roumors about security and stuff but there was non on site

the factory was massive and we spent a good 3/4 hours on the site just exploring

we did bump into lots of local kids, and also people doing abasling

Shame the site no longer around anymore !

History :

Look inside Redhill's abandoned Copyhold Works

The fuller's earth quarry and works has been closed for 20 years but could soon be replaced by housing

For more than 100 years, the Copyhold Works of the Fuller's Earth Union Ltd extracted the grey, mineral-rich clay known as "fuller's earth" and sold it on to a range of sectors from the wool trade to the oil industry.

It's also used as cat litter, and while most fuller's earth is now imported, until 1997 Redhill was one of only three sites in the UK where the valuable substance could be quarried

Wow, what a place! Love places like this with lots of different colours, pipes and rusty metal, makes such a great place to shoot!

Great pics, thank you!

Gutted. Yeah seems to have happened to all of the major old derelicts round where I am which I used to explore back in the day. I left the UK for a few years, came back and they were all houses or apartments! None of them left.
