    Roman Mosaic Tile Factory, Dudley - February 2016

    Explored with @plod and a 28DL member. There wasn't much to the first few rooms we explored apart from tonnes of christmas trees & graffiti so I wasn't too sure about the place upon first impressions, but the main factory bit was quite interesting and very colourful. Some of the machinery...
