Well this place has been done to death so it needs no introduction. A brief history nonetheless just in case ya’ll missed it the first ten times. “The structures are symbol of the brickwork industry in Bedfordshire and date back to the 1930s. Four of the 32 original chimneys remain on the site, standing up to 70m tall” In terms of output it was one of the largest in the world but sadly closed its doors in 2008.

The explore: This place is local to me and I’d been itching for a return, so I strolled on in to have a solo mooch. I spent 5 hours crawling around in the dust and dirt in searing heat but it was well worth it. This place is crumbling and I mean a real, crumbling, dangerous mess. They have resorted to filling the large cracks in the walls with expanding foam. It won’t be long now...


Sorry it’s pic heavy

Well miss muffin, I know how derpy this place is and you have somehow made it look excellent. Fab pics chuck, loving the dof in these and the colours. It'll be a shame when it finally goes.
