      After an early morning fail After bumping into secca on his mountain bike and plan b running into a small problem with four dogs and everyone's friend the Gurkha's , we ended up at this place which we then bumped into metal thief's dismantling the staircase as we walked down it . who turned out to be okay and let us get on with it so not a complete waste of a day ...
      visited with wevsky and maniac
      a little history
      In 1954 the works, by now employing 780 men, were bought by chemical company Laporte Industries. Production was stepped up to meet increasing demand and a large factory consisting of kilns, granulators, blungers, silos and transit systems on several floors was built. A large quarry existed to the east and in the 1970s this strange landscape stood in for various alien worlds in the BBC's Doctor Who series. In the 1980s, the Copyhold site was sending loose earths and packaged cat litter around the world. By 1995, however, due to falling profits it was announced that the company would close 10% of its 100 plants. Copyhold fell victim the following year and the Laporte Group was broken up with the majority share sold to an American private equity firm trading as Rockwood Holdings Inc. After the production lines were switched off, the 119 acre pit was purchased for use as a landfill site by Biffa Waste Services and continues to take waste from across Surrey. The factory was for a while used as a waste transfer station but this too was abandoned at some time in the last four years and the site is now derelict...

      This wasn't to be our actual explore,Stone house was our mission and after we arrived very early we where greated by 2 securitry vans occupants stood around chatting so a retreat to a local cafe was made.
      Some while later we returned and after we got past the nasty palisade fence we headed toward the access to the asylum itself,unfortunantly a secca on a bike rode round the corner after some light hearted banter he showed us off the iste..what a nice man!
      So then we went in search of another explore to be met by two vans with 4 dogs in total..not good so as in the area we popped into fullers so space invader could test out the new wideangle
      Visited With Space Invader Maniac..cheers to maniac for the driving and a few cold ones to get me started..class chap
      History on fullers is a done deal so as it was a plan B ill just share a few pics of visit which by the way was met by two pikeys unbolting the staircase we walked down ,bless them














      Not the most epic report in the world but due to bad luck its what we ended up doing so the day wasnt a complete waste

      Pretty much a derp de derp derp now, with meathead security.

      What an epic day out this was! After a massive stint on the M40/M25, with a freind of mine, and Mookster; and yes missing a junction through miss communication, Mooksters low volumed voice, and having removed the door tops for the sun, the roar of the 50s engineered diesel and windsheer we made it!
      What an awesome place, generally underestimated, this place has some awesome light, some nice machinery in situ, and a mecca of rusty silos and industrial porn, well worth the 250mile round trip (including taking peeps home!)
      excuse the minute photos, but some people dont like the larger ones.
