Not a lot of history on this one. A brickworks has been at the site since early last century, and closed around 1991.

The site is now earmarked for a landfill, but parts of it are still very live - I walked around one corner and came across two of the biggest rottweilers I'd ever seen. Given the choice of run or slowly back away, I choose the latter and they "escorted" me to the gate.

So if anyone is planning on going to get the internals, be careful!
