  1. Hello folks! This site is quite well known I would say - workers left the site for the last time in 2007. It was opened in 1962 as Ferodo brake components and all was dandy for almost 40 years until it was taken over by Friction Dynamics then things went tits up. It was the scene of one of the longest running industrial disputes ever with the T&GW union that lasted 2 and a half years. In the 10 years since it closed its been ravaged by storms, fire, general vandalism and corrosion due to the coastal location. So its an understatement to say its in pretty poor shape! Still, that doesn't mean I didn't find it interesting. I was actually walking to my sisters house to pick up my car and happened to be walking past so popped in to look around. I expected to see a complete dead loss, the kind of place its not worth taking the camera out of the bag. But I saw plenty to decide I'd come back with my camera gear. I decided to do something totally radical that I hadn't done before - do the entire set in Black & White. Here goes..... There are 3 separate buildings, this one housed the heavy industry, generating the power. The second building is the admin block Not so much left in there so onwards to the main building which is VAST! This is probably what most people will see when first entering, although there must be at least 20 other access points! There is a building inside the building I'd be interested to know what these big hanging things are/were in the next 2 pics And this is what held them in place up in the roof Sometimes when there's no epic stuff its the little things, the traces of what's left that I find fascinating. At some point this gloopy stuff had leaked and then set rock solid No security here but I was worried about projectiles of shit from above - a seagull with attitude dropped one a couple of feet away as I took this external
  2. Very nice work , I'll just settle for looking as I haven't got any worthwhile ones to contribute here..

    Very nice that mate, as you say sometimes you can't beat a solo mooch. Really like those old soviet murals and artworks.

    Some cracking images you got there reminds me a bit of George Barnsley, really liking it. This seems to be a place that has been 'on the map' for years and from the reports I see it surprisingly seems to get better and better!! Have there been new bits opening up I wonder? Must get my sorry arse round there at some point soon.....
  5. Liking the pics that show a bit of decay - just my taste Also nice to see somewhere different

    Very appropriate name - it sure looks chaotic! Even so it still seems a cool place to explore.
  8. Even though its stripped you've got some good images there to get an idea of the place. Nice share

    Fantastic irony that we strange folk are desperate to get into a place that so many were desperate to get out of
  10. Nice one And jeez - 8 in one day, that's going some!!!

    Nice set you got there. That's what struck me - how long it seems untouched and there must be so few of these places left, anywhere. Actually I don't remember seeing the cell in Picture 2.....dammit I'll need to have another look!

    Awesome looking place and the pics have done it justice. I love that bathroom! Seems that someone pretty creative lived there maybe...
  13. You got some great shots there mate, I rather liked this place and was very interesting. Btw I love the description of the farming activities going on!!
