Visited with Tbolt and Snapt, bumping into Judderman as he appeared from the marsh grass like some kind of big game hunter.
This place used to be a vast sprawling production centre for the smokeless fuel Coalite, a byproduct from the fuel known as Carbon Black was also processed for use as a pigment in the manufacture of vehicle tyres.
Opening in 1937, the 140 acre site finally closed in 2004, and has been sitting in development hell ever since.
There is talk of houses being built after a clean up of the land contamination, which is needed as the place stinks to hi heaven with a kind of weedkiller type smell.
Rather liked this place, seems to be the new place for good graffiti including a good few by Coloquix.
Whilst I'm sure this place will not be everyone's cup of tea, I loved the place and giving it 8/10, a revisit on the cards at some point to see the evolving canvas.
