Had a great afternoon exploring here, what a place. It’s huge!! I have been meaning to visit here for years & it certainly has fallen into disrepair over the years (since I've known about the place). I should have gone years ago!

Must go back on a sunny/warmer day & hopefully next time we won’t get caught by the angry farmer/security guy ?

I like the eleventh photo in black and white and the images of the ladder.

Some nice shots in there, place seems more and more graffed-up each time I see it. Never heard of an angry farmer yet though! :)

Thank you @Dubbed Navigator, that's very kind of you :) I shall upload more after the weekend. I've got another place to visit, a place I've been wanting to explore for ages. So keep your eyes peeled. I shall do a few more multiple exposure type shots as you liked this one so much.. Thanks again!

Thank you @Andy I like that photo too. I was going to climb up the ladder but then I bottled it. I'm not so daring nowadays, now I've hit the 40 mark ;)

Thank you @hamtagger Yeah it's pretty gaffed-up & the tanks have gone but I'll revisit once it gets warmer, it was bloody freezing that day! Hopefully I won't see Mr Angry next time :)

Wonder where the tanks ended up? I did enjoy having a look around those a few years ago :)

      In the forest sits this stone building, I can't find any info on it other that it's sitting on a settlement mound.

      The company was established in 1949 , they relocated in 2015 to a more central location and just left the site ,
      there is a small petrol station at the front consisting of two bungalows , one is fairly empty and the other is full of paperwork from the petrol sales , 
      not a huge ammount left in the factory but a fair bit of office stuff laying round and a few work stations , decaying nicely in a few places
      on with the pics from my visit

      I had been waiting to do this one for a month or so; but simply hadn't found the time to hop on the M40 and up to Brum.  
      It was a good opportunity to meet up with some explorers whom I have been chatting to for the best part of ten years or so and do an explore at the same time!  
       
      We arrived here mid morning one Sunday and once inside; the beauty of the place was revealed!  I really loved this place.  
       
      Again though; it was full of the new age era of explorers; about a dozen of them, some videoing and some just shooting photos.  It's rare you bump into a person on explores, but lately its been every explore.  This one was flavour of the month back in the summer though!!
       
      After the explore, we went to Costco for a cheap lunch in the canteen there and had a nice, chilled drive around the local area looking for other sites

      The Hall, built between 1903 and 1904 by architects Ewan Harper and James Harper and the terracotta was made by Gibbs and Canning ltd of Tamworth, is situated at the northern end of Corporation Street in Birmingham. 
       
      The hall is a 3 storey red brick and terracotta building with Grade II Listing on it, with  2000 seats in the main halll over 30 additional rooms including 3 school halls. 
      By 1991, the building had been converted into a nightclub which closed in 2002, but reopened as the Q Club in 2007. 
      This club's last event at the premises was "Flashback" in 2011. During its time as a Night Club 3 deaths were reported.  
      -A punter jumped off the tower in 1998 
      -A clubber OD'd in 2000 
      -A stabbing outside in 2008. 
      The Club reopened in 2012, but closed in 2016.  
       
      In 2018; Birmingham city council granted planning permission to convert it into a 147 room hotel costing £35 million.
      Works have begun and are expected to be complete by 2020.
       
      I just love the contrast between old and new here; with the older Methodists Hall and the big, modern buildings springing up around it.  There is a live part of the building and as we were there, a Gospel Band were practicing literally behind the wall; a strong scent of Jerk Chicken was filling the rooms of the abandoned part.
