Incredible climate. Several work halls, in one stand drills, lathes, milling machines ... right next to carriages and goods wagons. Everything is gently sunk in the green eaves ... Some 150 skilled workers used to work in these halls. Today there is silence.

beep beeep beep!! its 4am time to splore!! a text comes through "" OI T**T get up! Time to coffin Dodge!" x .........
We have both looked at this one for a year or more and ummed and arrged at it...a 50 ft wall surrounds it...rotating razor wire on every access point..spikes topping all the walls...major drops..plus on the doorstop of an extremly busy area..but neither of us were going to settle until be gave her a really good bash.. after negotiating the wall we slowly tiptoed across a very snowy slippery ledge with a " dont look down " drop and hay prestow...its coffin time!
you either look at it and do it... or just walk away,,,today the was no walking away..
Inside needless to say it was incredible completly fasinating...it was pitch black when we got in and to be confronted with two coffins was rather spooky to say the least... the history is just amazing with coffins being made here for Lady Diana and sir winston Churchill....
This explore was just brilliant with fab company as always..cheers Tink!
On with the Pics...
And after all that sploring my keeper watches over me while i sleep.......

Have just become aware of some bloody horrible news via Glenn Bruce on FaceBook and linked to his thread on 28 regarding the Iconic Dick Willows cider shop closing.
Will the Wiltshire weekends in the mine party's ever be the same
After careful consideration, we have taken the decision to leave the
premises on Box Road from the end of March. It seems an appropriate moment to restructure and focus on our core business - making cider!
We would like to thank all our wonderful customers who have supported us through the past four years.
The barn will still be open to the public and some of the existing businesses will continue to operate from the building, including Kellyann Bespoke
Picture Framing, Blooms Florist and the Walk of Curiosity (antiques and collectables, bygones and curios).
For the time being you will be able to find Dick Willows at the weekly Bath Farmers Market, Green Park Station, Saturdays from 9.30am. You can continue to keep in touch with us via Facebook...or if you drop us a quick email to [email protected] we can add you to our mailing list and keep you up to date with all our cider news. All other contact information at http://www.dickwillows.com.
You can rest assured, we will continue to make great cider, we hope to be in the running again this year for the Bristol Good Food Awards best cider, we will be at the Bath Farmer's Market every Saturday, the Dick Willows Cider Bar will be popping up at private and community events throughout the year, and we may well put on some events in the future. So we're not going away! x
