This is one of those locations you look at and wonder 'why the hell doesn't it get explored more?'. I can't for the life of me work out why it has flown under the radar so much, it's a massive old brewery ripe for photographing. Currently the smaller parts of the site across the road are being turned into housing, but the main brewery and associated outbuildings are sitting there waiting for whatever fate will come their way. It has a really nice mix of architectural styles and decay, from the main brew house tower through to the maltings section full of beautiful woodwork, and the more modern yeast fermenting areas. Plus there is a nice carpet of pigeon poo over quite a lot of the floors and some very sketchy areas rotted through from water damage. Overall a very enjoyable explore and a total surprise as we turned up without knowing the site, whether it would be accessible, or even how much of it would still be there. Despite ruining my back and ripping my coat getting in and out, it was smooth as could be. Thanks for looking, more here https://www.flickr.com/photos/mookie427/albums/72157660200086409
Well, after getting my hands on my new Olympus OMD EM-5 and a 17mm f1.8 I've been trying to get out and give it a go for the last few weeks and finaly managed to finish at work in time to call at Kimberley on the way home.
