  1. After finding ourselves in a live swimming baths in Birmingham we had a short trip to West Brom to have a look at this place which from the outside doesn't look too big but once inside its huge, loads of interesting stuff! Visited with @hamtagger & @Fatpanda Cheers for looking
  2. Cool report mate, I found myself in here a couple years ago but it was crawling with workers, before we had to make a quick escape I can recall seeing a staircase with a huge painting on the wall, did you see that? Near to the dome in pic #16
  3. Awesome stuff, the amount of times I've checked for a way in here is unreal ?
  4. That's abit nice mate! Those projectors are wicked
  5. One of my favourite places! Got some really nice shots there and I've gotta agree with Andy the wind turbines shot is awesome
  6. looks like a fun day out! is it one of those if the red flag is flying dont walk around ranges or just pray they aren't dropping bombs and hope for the best?
  7. Vandicourt Quarry is a geological Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). The rocks here are limestones which were formed in a shallow tropical sea, known as the Zechstein Sea, about 255 million years ago during the Permian Period. The Zechstein Sea extended from eastern England across northern Europe. During the second world war the tunnels beneath the quarry were used by local people as air raid shelters. I came across this place a fair few months ago with @Fatpanda after heading over to see his new house i noticed a quarry from the side of the road so off we headed to see what was there, and to our amazement we actually found a tunnel at the base of the limestone cliff which led to a rather small set of tunnels which were filled with lots of rusty old bike wheels, and some other rusty items. There was a few old newspapers too but they were in a fairly bad state so I couldn't make out the dates There is evidence that local yobbos use the place drinking venue too Sorry if some of the shots seem a little overexposed but I found it pretty hard to take photos in here for some reason! Thanks for looking
  8. Inside looks cool enough but fck me that view is epic! Nice work mate
  9. Built in 1881 Stephenson Brothers Dry Salters were responsible for making dyes and colourings which would have been in demand by the neighbouring textile mills across Bradford and the rest of the north. They also manufactured soaps, polishes and lubricating oils , that would have been used across the city and beyond. After a walk around at Malham Cove with @Fatpanda we decided to pop in this place on the way home before it spontaneously combusted like most of the other mills in bradford. it was the first time in a while visiting a needle infested crackhead grotto instead of the massive industrial site's we have been spoiled by last year, it was nice not creeping around corners and getting ready to leg it at any minute! anyway enough babbling on with the pictures As soon as we squeezed through the access we were greeted by the crackhead grotto! I always thought this staircase was in Dalton Mills in Keighley for some reason, it was nice to finally see it even though I couldn't get a good shot of it! @Fatpanda Posing Thanks for looking sorry if your not a fan of needle infested derps!
