A truly wild and wet autumnal day in West Yorkshire, visited with Urban Spaceman with his SatNav set to Wuthering Heights Mode, just one setting down from car destruction mode.
A public footpath from the road runs directly thru this old brick factory, so no excuses on this one as its the ultimate easy in.
The once home of the Allen and Son Brickworks from 1905 until 1960s, although the factory does pre-date this.
Later known as G.R. Stein's Brickworks and then later the works was used by a plastics company as a manufacturing base until its final closure.
I spotted this place in a few reports and to be honest the place does seem to have gone down hill over the last year or so.
Quite a large site, with lots of outbuildings, many in a total state of disrepair and smashed to bits by the vandals, some buildings fire damaged and a few in a state of collapse.
On the upside the site has been turned into massive art gallery by graffiti artists.
It's worth exploring every nook and cranny if you have the time to make the effort, as little gems are hidden out of clear view and the first looks of this sprawling "dump" are deceptive.
Sorry for so many photos, I've missed out loads - so take a trip to Hipperholme Brickworks !!!!
