Some of you may have already seen this one. This is a nice paper mill closed down almost a decade ago. There are many photos of this place when it was still active, and some of them were taken when the factory had been occupied by workers right after the closure...

It's a rather good place still today, despite the amount of copper thieves who came here. There are still some interesting things such as the power station (probably the best part), the semi-active substation, some laboratories and archives... We also found a small container where a radioactive substance called thorium nitrate used to be stored.

Wow, what a place. Love the pipework.

 

Have you anymore you could add to it? looks like a huge place.

 

Sorry, I published all of my pics here. These are the only ones I will post because they're the best I could take. It's a rather big place indeed, but I think that the nice spots have been all showed. Sadly most of the machinery has been removed...

      Treading a well worn path to this behemoth of a building 
       
      The foundation stone for Greenbank Drive Synagogue was laid on 14 June 1936 by Baron Tobias Globe attended by the Chief Rabbi of the British Empire, Dr J H Hertz. The building was consecrated on August 15 1937 and opened by Professor Henry Cohen (a member of the congregation and later Lord Cohen of Birkenhead). The basement area of the building was originally used as a youth centre and the synagogue had its own scout troop (the 22nd Wavertree). During the blitz in 1941 Greenbank Drive Synagogue was used as a reception centre for bombed out families in Liverpool and held a non-Jewish service at Christmas. It was also used as a social centre during the war by American Jewish GIs stationed at an air base in Burtonwood, Warrington. After the war they presented a plaque to the congregation (displayed in the entrance hall). In May 1959 a burglar started a fire that destroyed the Ark and Torah scrolls and part of the roof structure. The building was subsequently restored by the original firm of architects at a cost of £50,000 and re-consecrated in 1961. Due to increasing competition the youth centre closed at this time. A further fire occurred in two first floor offices behind the ladies' gallery in 1965 but damage was confined to the former areas. The building ceases active use on January 5 2008.

      A short little report from a little while back.
       
      Without going into too much detail this building is one of the more longer abandonments situated on the ground of a partially used hospital some where in the south.
       
      The ground around the building has been flattened and at the time of our visit workers were at it digging the land up or something like that. 
       
      After sneaking past the workers and into the building we spent a short period inside before the noise of wooden boards being cut filled the area. We got out before we couldn't anymore...

      Built in the 18th century Minera Hall was the former family home of the Dutons a timber importing magnate whose buisness collapsed when japan invaded Burma in WW2 halting the teak trade
      latterly in the later part of the 20th Century the hall became the villabe RBL club and now stands empty and derelict
       
      The dry/wet rot battle spooked me when I first saw it never sen out like it before

      The Site
      Dating back to 1874 these works have produced sodium carbonate common in cleaning products, dyes, fertilizers and other such products.
      The works have been operated under Brunner Mond, Imperial Chemical Industries, and TATA Chemical Europe. The works were also responsible for "accidentally" creating polythene in 1933 during an experiment.
       
      TATA Europe closed these works in 2014 along with the attached power station responsible for power supply.
