Nothing special but a nice wander round and a well needed bit of exercise after all that bloody food

Visited with Slim,
To the Jim.

 

Early morning,
The sun was just dawning,
A pattering of paws we did hear,
As the falcon we drew near.

 

A dog sniffling by my feet,
I begin to taste defeat,
A torch passing overhead,
Still we stay dead.

 

Footsteps in front of us fall,
A whistle,
No longer does the dog us eyeball,
Face down in thistle.

 

Still we lay,
light moves further away,
fuck we utter in unison,
this space ship is a toxin.

 

To the exit we do go,
Vehicle headlights behind us do glow,
In the forest we do collapse,
Jim his go pro he does not find,
Our fate is signed.

 

In again we go,
Fingertip searching,
Jim finds his go pro,
Forward I go jogging.

 

Through the trees,
I begin to wheeze,
There I see it before my eyes,
Space ship from the darkness rise.

 

Dogs begin to bark,
Bringing an end to this lark,
Engine begins to roar,
Time to go I know the score.

Why a silly old music box you may ask?

 

I had a child free night last night. Going to bed I tripped up on this, which when she is around I end up cursing to myself whilst I nurse a sore foot.

 

Last night it just reminded how much I missed her, so this time I just picked up and snapped a picture.

      Visited back in November with Mookster after seeing the Typhoo Factory.  Another one ticked off the list which has been kicking about for years.  I really enjoyed this one; though quite bare and largely sealed, it had a lot of nice things to see down there.  The air was pretty bad though in places!
       
      History - Borrowed!
      The ‘Shadow Factory Tunnels’ are what remain of Lord Austin’s secret plans that were created to increase the force of the British military against the German military aggression in the arms race that led up to the start of the Second World War. 
       
      Munitions workers produced Merlin engines to power Spitfires and Hawker Hurricanes which were used to regain control of the British skies during the 1940 Battle of Britain.
      The Shadow Scheme involved two stages; the building of nine new factories and the extension of  existing factories.
       
      This extension included here; the Longbridge plant. Australian-born industrialist and Conservative MP, Lord Austin, whom founded Austin Motors; had already contributed to the war effort during the First World War, turning his factories to munitions and engine production.
       
      The tunnels which ran beneath Austin Rovers Longbridge plant are mostly all that is left of the plant; a large housing development increases in size upon the former footprint.  These tunnels ensured that production of the engines and munitions could continue underground in relative safety. 
       
      After WWII; the factory returned to producing automobiles and the tunnels were soon abandoned. By the late 60s, the  plant was the second largest car plant in the world. 
       
      After the collapse of MG Rover, the site saw its redevelopment.  Famously; a mini was kept down here after workers damaged it in the 70s and it was hidden from bosses.  The mini is now in a museum.  
      This is a very small portion of the tunnels.  Lots is bricked up

      During the Cold War, this bunker was built as an auxiliary hospital.
      The overlying school was opened in the 60s while the hospital was officially inaugurated in the 80s.
      It offered 2,370 places and never went into operation.
      At the turn of the millennium, it was relieved of its responsibilities, the inventory transferred to other states, and the hospital will be soon demolished.
