  1. Thanks guys. Yeh the last pic is my favourite.
  2. It's not often I visit a place twice in close succession, but there were a few areas we couldn't get to last time and I had a feeling there were ways in, but just hadn't seen them. I went back earlier today and sure enough, found my way to quite a few new bits. Not sure whether we had just missed the massive gapping hole in the wall last time round that took us to it, or whether the breeze blocks on the floor has recently been knocked through by some scallies. Anyway, it's still pretty derp in there, but made for a nice few shots so thought i'd share.

  3. UK Crown Maltings - Burton-on-Trent

    Yeh there's not much left at all really, but I think we missed a few areas. Might pop back at some point just to satisfy my curiousity as its only 10 minutes away lol.
  4. UK Crown Maltings - Burton-on-Trent

    Thanks m8. The light through the roof on the upper floors is pretty cool.
  5. I haven't done any explores for what seems like an eternity for one reason or another. So when someone told me that this place had opened up again right on my doorstep I thought it would be rude not to pop and have a mooch. I can't find much history about this place other than it used to be part of a larger site of maltings in the area, most of which were demolished in the late 60's but a few remained. A few years ago more were demolished including an old brewery site, but this one still stands. Half the site is inaccessable due to still being in use, and what is accessable is in a pretty sorry state. Woodern floors on the lower levels are not in the best condition in places, but the concrete floors higher up a solid enough. There were a few areas we saw through broken floor boards that looked interesting, but could't figure out how to them. And although there is a basement, this seemed a little illusive aswell. If anyone else knows of any history of this place, please feel free to post. Anyway, on with the shots.

  6. UK Fole Dairy, Uttoexter - May 2016

    Nice set. Looks a lot better than I expected. Passed this place a ton of times and always fancied a look but never had the time. Might take a look at some point.
  7. Seriously, thanks again guys. As has been said it really is hard to show the vastness of these things and there also rather impressive when u get up close and inside them for the first time. Just as I was leaving the site on this particular day a guy was arriving with a drone. Unfortunately the weather turned to I didnt hang about. Shame cus I bet he got some fantastic shots from that thing. Also, yes the feedback on the other report is a little shocking to say the least. It makes me sad also. Not because of the comments to my work, as this sort of thing doesnt faze me in the slightest as ive been photographing for 25 years now. But more so that these comments are not just isolated to my report, I see them time and time again and there are alot of people out there just getting started and those sorts of comments could put people off showing there work. Anyway, rant over I look forward to sharing some more of my work soon.
  8. Thanks for the comments guys. Posted the same set on another well know urbex forum and didn't quite the same positive comments on the shots (particularly the editing). Each to there own I guess, but I know which forum I will continue to post on in the future
  9. I think most people know the history of this place. It was a power station in Willington (Derbyshire) until the final part closed in late 90's and was subsequently demolished. The only thing left standing now is the 5 cooling towers and the nearby sub station. There isnt a huge amount to see around this site but it is worth a Sunday afternoon mooch if your in the area as there are a few interesting bits and pieces lieing around. Anyway, on to the pics. I wasnt in the area long as it was a late afternoon decision and the light was fading by the end. Also couldn't resist taking the last pic of the graffiti, as it was my initials lol
  10. Hello from Staffordshire

    Thanks for the welcome guys. Gi Jo: Yeh that would be good. Got a couple of places planned. I'll give u a shout and sort something out.
  11. Thought i'd pop these up as my first report (please go gentle). Visited this place a few times over 2012 -2013. Most of you prob know the history as it's been posted a few times. Sad to say its all gone now though, just a pile of bricks on an otherwise empty piece of land. Anyways here's the pics: Thanks for looking
  12. Thought i'd pop in and say hi from Burton on Trent as I was recommended this forum by someone on the LCE stand at The Photography Show @ the NEC earlier today. Have to say some impressive stuff on here folks. Looking forward to posting some pics up myself shortly. Cheers
