Explored with Raz after missing out on the last trip Background; Croda was originally owned by Price's Patent Candle Company. In 1853, Palm oil was brought into Liverpool and so the company needed a site to use the palm oil closer to Liverpool than taking it to London by boat. The company build what is now Bromborough Pool village and opened a new factory in Bromborough. The factory opened in 1855 and the company went from having 84 staff in 1840 to a remarkable 2300. (Borrowed from Coolboyslim who borrowed from Lavino - Hope thats okay lads ) The Explore; We arrived at Sunlight Port after a Macdonalds and a swift drive through Liverpool under the Mersey tunnel, and saw that a demolition company has already started on pulling the place down, and with that secca had been employed to protect the 360's and keep pesky explorers out... Not a problem, makes it more fun Generally the place is a bit trashed but still it has some nice parts as im sure you will see below. Time of year is an issue with this place as the high winds at the weekend were shaking the building all over the place at the top. I dont envy Raz who climbed the towers. Sod that!!! On wit' pics; (Yorkshire Dialect - Need to Translate?) Seccaaaaa Thanks for looking
A bit of History: The plant started operating in 1855 and employed over 2000 workers at the hight of its trade. It has had other names over the years but Croda being the most commonly known in recent times. The plant unfortunately closed in 2009, which did cause over 100 staff to loose their jobs, but they very kindly spent Â£40 million on turning this danger hazard into a playground for us adventurers! The Explore: This one was explored with Raz and Fat Panda.. As we arrived, true to their nature, we had council workers opposite our entrance just wasting air as they sat there motionless in their van. We took a wander around the site and managed to find our way in after having a lovely chat with one of the local scum bags who just could not understand why we weren't going in to steal anything... Anyway after creeping around a little we came to the conclusion there was no secca onsite. Now with freedom to explore we wandered freely. Unfortunately I could not make it up the towers as my jelly legs would not allow me to but all in all it was a fun explore. This is the first report I have uploaded so any pointers would be great Thanks for looking this far

Has we got there acid suddenly stopped and said someone is riding a bike round the outside of building looking in like secca etc. Very clever has a lot quieter than a quad. Anyways once he had done one in we went but that wasn't the end of close calls and surprises lol. After a nice walk round we split up temporally taking some shots. When from out of no where this dude walked right past a door where i was stood big bald dude looked like someone you wouldn't wanna meet lol. He didn't see me so i slowly made my way back to acid told him and waited a little. Anyway decided to make our way to another building the clock tower was our next port of call. Just has we went round the corner this lad came the other way How the fook he didn't see us i have no idea. Anyway me and acid then hid like a couple of prats in a fairly cramp shower after stepping across some minions heads that made more fooking noise than pigeons lol. After 15 mins or so acid then decided to say WTF are we doing lol. And out we went straight into clock tower building. Now this was pretty cool. While we where in there one floor above us there was a shit ton of noise. Talking banging etc. When we got to stairs we stood for a bit then decided fook it up we went. Now no ghost shit but FFS it was empty no fooker there 15 mins of noise and now empty no way down past us NOTHING. So if that was you doing one hell of a magic trick fair play. We couldn't get to the clock but from what Ive heard its modern now so not really much to see. Anyway did the rest towers etc. And then right near the end i heard acid say hello and in walked this big bald dude Shit busted. So you would think but oh no all this time playing hide and seek and he was there doing something metal who knows cause he says " Are you meant to be in here " In which Acid replies in his charming manner " No Are You" The guy then says " No " Acid then says " Good " LMFAO. All this fooking time hide and fooking seek and they where not even secca DUH. Anyways was a bloody fun explore now on with thee pics. PICS WooHoo Kitchens lol love me a kitchen.
