History

The factory was opened by Saunders-Roe during WW2, where it fitted out Catalina flying boats purchased from the US for the RAF. After the war, products built at the site included patrol boats and minesweepers and also bus bodies for London and Cuba. The site was taken over by Laird (Anglesey) in 1968. One of Laird s products was the unsuccessful Centaur, a Land Rover-based half-track vehicle. In 1996 FAUN took over their long-standing licensee Laird (nglesey) and in 1997 moved production to its newly built facility in Llangefni.

The explore 

Pretty uneventful really. A lot quick hop over a wall and we were in a field of sheep who were so friendly they would foil anyone's attempt at stealth.  30 woolie shadows going baaa really loudly makes things really unsubtle.

A quick squizz through the bushes and we were in.  A nice relaxed amble around the bigger open sheds and an easy wiggle through a window into some others.

Looks like the place is partially live though. As we peered around a corner near the front entrance we noticed a land-rover parked inside the fence and the door open but no one in sight.  On trying a door as dilapidated looking as the rest a nice loud beeping started so we made a backwards retreat and mooched around the rest of the site.

Nice set. I especially like the fifth photo with the cobwebs.
