mookster posted a topic in Industrial LocationsTo me this was some proper exploring. All I had been given by Mr. Perjury Saint was the name of a premises in Oldham that might be worth a look on the way past, a few days before I set off up north with Landie Man. I had no idea what it looked like on the outside, hadn't seen any photos of the inside on the internet and had no idea how to get in beforehand. Considering the last time I had explored a building in Oldham it was set on fire by some yobbos whilst we were inside I was slightly skeptical of doing anything in the area! It turned out to be a really nice site, not the biggest industrial location ever but one with a lot of goodies to poke through and some lovely features which in turn reminded me of both George Barnsley's and George Dyke's factories elsewhere. A bit of history borrowed from their still active website... Sadly the company went into liquidation in June 2013 (although parts, particularly the upstairs of the shop area looked to have been empty for decades!) and the land has sat vacant since. The owners put the closure down to the development of the metrolink cutting off their business from customers. We were pushed for time a bit with parking restrictions etc so my time poking around in the offices was sadly shorter than I would have liked, but I enjoyed my wander around here. Oldham has redeemed itself. Thanks for looking as ever, more here https://www.flickr.com/photos/mookie427/sets/72157652627091411
