This huge site was a newspaper printers that I saw online had recently closed, so I decided to go for a drive to see what was left. Turns out it was still a live site (the offices) and they was getting the machines ready for sale or to be scrapped. I managed to talk my way into been given permission to take some shots of the place before it was emptied. I spent about 2 hours inside wandering about, which for me was awesome considering I dont get to do much in the way of industrial sites. There was quite a lot still to see and some big machines, some of what wasn't very old at all. A lot of jobs were lost which is always a shame, production got moved to another site in the end.

That's a bit special mate, really enjoyed these, top notch stuff. You could definitely get away with uploading these pics a size bigger too, you can go as big as 1024 x 681 large. Cheers for posting these up (y)
