The explore :

Been meaning to go to wells factory for a while now but for some reason just didn’t, The drive up to it not that far from me so it okay for a semi-local mooch

Once we got up there we walk up the country lane as we heard about people being locked in at the gate ( To stop fly-tipping)

Before you ask where “well fireworks factory “ is - it a landmark on google now! I assume so many people have been there over the year

Once we outside the old fireworks factory, we walk right in with no issue at all first was greeted by a very run-down building, that pretty much fallen apart, as we keep walking around, Most of the huts was taken over by Mother Nature the brambles was so high

Some of the huts were doable but not all of them, there was a well-trodden down cut back parth going right down the middle, and some cut back path into the building but not all of them.

As the sun was setting the place started to get more spooky! Defo a place I won’t be going back in a hurry

history : The amazing past of fireworks firm

Kent lighterman Joseph Wells founded the explosives firm in 1837 and it operated from multiple premises before settling in Joyce Green Lane in 1938.
