old factory once sat on a quite out of town road, today that
same road has turned into a major thoroughfare making access
inside tricky. The factory dates from the 1960’s and
saw work manufacturing industrial spirits.
The weather that day was wet and drizzly. The roof of the
building with its many holes created a soothing sound track
of dripping water that echoed throughout the decayed structure.
The light was dim inside with all the windows obscured by
jungle growth, the walls were also coated in thick brownish
black grime; a rather hellish interior to experience first
A strong odor of industrial spirits still hung in the air
and upon discovering the old store rooms I found out why the
smell was still so potent. Barrels of old stock as well as
a massive floor to ceiling high storage tank still sat there
in the darkness holding liquid product of unknown vintage.
The only main architectural highlight to
be found here was a wonderful spiral staircase that serviced
the factories main chimney. All other major equipment had
since been removed and scrapped, leaving dangerous dark
gaping holes in the floor.
2 hours into my
explore here, the rain began to fall harder and my presence
had now whipped up clouds of mosquitos into action, it was
time to leave.
