They were originally located in Croydon Later moving to a purpose built factory in Oxford in 2012
The Croydon site has been empty for a while and has become a haven for graffiti artists, skaters and fly tippers.

The Explore

Out yet again with @slayaaaa or a let’s see what we can find kinda afternoon and although we had spoken about this site, we had our eyes on something opposite it that was much more fun….
On approaching the site the sheers scale of it was impressive, as was the amount of graffiti that covered it. Now I’m not just talking quick tags or throw up but full on proper pieces of art.
We had a quick chat outside with a couple of painters and in we went.
A nice chilled explore accompanied by the smell of fresh paint and some great views

As always please enjoy the pics

Sterling is one of my favourite artists, his stuff really stands out from normal graffiti. Think I'll have to give this a nose soon.
