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: Hipperholme Brickworks, Halifax Feb '09 16 snaps   Tue Mar 03, 2009 12:05 pm

Inspired by Secret Squirrel's trip! The glazed brick manufacturers established by Henry Victor Allen when he took over the Halifax Glazed Brick Works in the Walterclough valley. He converted the works to manufacture refractory bricks. Their Selfrac refractory bricks were world famous.
The bricks were carried by narrow-gauge railway up the valley to the sidings at Hipperholme station.
Today the site is ruined and fire damaged after a series of suspicious fires when it was a plastics place.
Here's a view I took as I helicoptered over with Noel Edmonds in September. It's a small picture as I only had a small camera then.

Today the site is abandoned.

It looked like there is some clearance of the site. Not that much though.

Still a lot to see. Cool conveyor type thing.

A workshop. Trashed but loads left behind.

More ruined outbuildigs.

This ceiling was impressive. A brick drying shed?

A couple of kilns were in this part. There was some good pipes too.

Discarded door in the shadows of one room.

Upstairs in the "house" on picture two. Lot of newspaper and teabags on the floor. This was looked like a staffroom.

My favourite shot. My nana had one of these with the light on the front. I still feel scared just thinking about the noise.

This place was surprisingly enjoyable to potter round. You'd like it.

There was always something different to see. Upstairs in another part was the carpet mountain range, a large room shoulder high in carpet tiles.

Lots of oil drums around the site. At no time did I feel like building a raft out of them for a charity race.

An office.

Another room.

Although this place is trashed, it was a great place to wander around for a while. I have the feeling it is very slowly being cleared, but it doesn't appear to occupied at all. Surprisingly graffiti free too.

Nice one bounce those are really good pictures. my pic of the carpet tile room didn't come out so good but it was a surprise to come across it, think i need a tripod and more time to play with my shutter speeds.
The door and furnace pictures are smashing it's nice to see some different angles, given me some more ideas too.
Your right about wandering round for ages, me and my mate could have spent hours exploring that place.
Did you find the J.C.B graveyard on the other side of the site?
