Default Horwich Loco Works - December 2013 - 25-01-2014, 15:30

Visited with Snake Oil

Due to an article in the Bolton News with regards to the possibility of Bolton Council allowing the building of 1700 new dwellings on the Loco Works site we decided to pay it a visit.
We had chosen a nice Sunday morning over the Christmas holidays for the visit. The site has 24 hour security, which is located at the main entrance, so we opted for an alternative way in. The biggest shock we had was that at the far end of the site, there was already demolition taking place; on a Sunday, over Christmas! Rather keen!

Our main objective was to locate and photograph the old erecting sheds, which I do believe are the largest remaining disused erecting sheds in the country.

There were cameras on almost every building on the site, but as we casually went about our business, we never encountered any problems.

A nice chilled explore.

There is loads of information on the internet, but a link to the Wiki page can be found here

Anyway, on with the pictures. A few old ones off the net first, and then my point and shoots


















































Thanks for looking!
