Good to see pictures from here again and stir it in the memories.
Gotta agree completely with you there mate. My old man spent some time in there back in the '50s whilst doing his electrical apprenticeship, I always give it a nod when passing up/down the M61.


Do not meddle in the affairs of cats for they are subtle and will piss on your computer!

Nice one, interesting to see inside the sheds, best to make the most of your chance. I discovered that they're not keen on you wandering around with a camera on the site…

I wandered in peace for a while, but as I was heading back to the car one of the lads from one of the units beckoned me and said, security wants a word. As you say probably luck, though the pikeys camped alongside the fence didn't help his humour… My objective was the foundry but a little bird tells me that's been demo'd now which is a real shame; did manage to see inside one of the sheds though.

The foundry was demo'd last year, there is a report on here of it somewhere.
