Anyone feel the need to be MOD?
Sun Apr 18, 2010 6:14 pm by meanwood_monks
Been thinking about this for a while now.

Some of you guys/gals have been here since day 1. Cheers for all your support over this time.
Was wondering if anyone was wanting to keep an eye on things and have MOD rights here.

PostSubject: Wilkinson's Clay works, Elland 11 pictures   Wed Nov 19, 2008 11:33 am

I really liked this place. We'd had a few no accesses by mid afternoon, and the next stop on a tight schedule was here. As a walk in, firedamaged and trashed you don't expect much, and to be honest, there isn't much here. But it's a very enjoyable, chilled way to spend an hour or so.
Most recently, this place was a refuse collection centre, and landfill. Aka Blackley Fire Clay Works, Wilkinson's Brickworks, Blackley.

The chimney at the works was built in 1894 and was a local landmark.


Window (of course)


Downstairs was ruined, covered in tiny plastic/polystyrene balls. It looked like an explosion in a beanbag factory.


Upstairs was cool, and after some of the worst ladder climbing in Britain, I got up. My favourite room.


With some fine grafitti


I guess this was the remains of a conveyor.


This brickworks closed in 1985. It is now open to the elenents.


The lift shaft is there, but my picture of the machinery was rubbish.


Metal shelves


Will the last explorer out please turn off the lights.


The Great Silver Snake of Elland Brickworks can be seen in the background


A familiar site, having been done before, but a nice one nevertheless.

That's looking good Rich. Can't see I've seen this place before. Lot's of nice rust in there.
Good shots mate!! Smile
