A Curious Place


Photobucket

It seems that this large expansive premises was predominantly a business that produced sawn timber for structure and cladding with storage perhaps as a sideline. There’s a hell of a lot of dry timber that's been stored and just left throughout all the different structures on site, looks to have been there 15-20ish years.

There are dozens of vehicles dotted around, ranging from a 1949 Bedford MLC (last taxed in 1969) to a 1993 Ford Escort all in varying states of disrepair.

I can't find any info regarding any business based here and due to the sensitivity of contents, its whereabouts will remain undisclosed. It seems to have become abandoned in stages, the ages of the vehicles give the main clues of when...

The lighting was terrible, it was pissing it down and freezing - Despite that, here are some photos.
