Found this place by comparing a vague YouTube video and some info I've found here and there, then confirmed with Google maps satellite. Place was pretty big, but unfortunately pretty destroyed by vandals over time. Here are some pictures I took on my scouting trip there. Will go back for more/better shots.

Looks a pretty cool explore to me. How far are you from Philly? There's an epic power station there. I'm tempted to visit from the UK!

Maybe about 4/5hr drive? But if you ever come to the US do contact me. I would be totally game. Also am trying to figure out my next dates to come to France (lived there for 20years, I go back about once a year for a week or two, maybe a lil trip to the UK is possible there ?)

Pretty busted from the fire as you say, but I have a feeling that was a really cool place to have a wander. I really like that last shot too, something really odd about it.

It was really cool. I did GoPro the visit but haven't uploaded it yet. Unfortunately I changed batteries at one point and managed to rookie not press record properly so didn't record the last part and our exit. Will post a link here when it's uploaded

      This is from a exploration on the 13th of May, 2013. These pictures are mostly the east buildings from the interior. Second set will be south end and my favorites, the roof.
      Brach’s Candy was a Chicago (and world) candy factory legend. This facility, one of the largest candy factories in the world, was mostly built in 1921-23 and then partially rebuilt in 1948 after a tragic fire and explosion killed 11 employees. At its peak, the facility was over 2,200,000 sq feet (670,560 meters) and had 2,400 workers. Typical vulture capitalism in the 1980’s into the 2000’s destroyed the company and this facility closed the doors to workers in 2003. One of the office buildings was blown up for the movie Dark Knight in 2007. Due to much of the west complex being gang occupied and the neighborhood sporadically violent, I chose the last cold day of that spring to visit, on Mother’s Day, a very big holiday in the USA, figuring even gangbangers might take an afternoon off to visit their mums 🙂
      So I got there mid-afternoon and only left as it was getting too dark to see much, let alone photograph. I tried to go back one more time, but it was not possible to access, and within weeks it was in the process of being wrecked. For the USA, it had more interior metal than many buildings I've been in, which usually have been picked clean by scrappers, which gave it a nice ambiance. Overall, it was a very dark location, due to most windows being bricked up and it was late in the day when I visited, but what light I had was beautiful. The last pic in this set shows downtown Chicago in the distance.
      I'll post set two in a week or two, then start digging through files for other past and recent explorations.
      Many thanks to everyone who welcomed me on the introduction board. Thanks to all who share, some really amazing reports here, and looking forward to looking around more, but figured I should share something for starters 🙂
