Fallen Nemesis

Recommended Posts

So here's the thing, we all have one don't we?
No Snapt not one of those! I'm talking about a Nemesis.

Snapt's is a certain place in Liverpool and no matter what happens it just never goes well, even when it's open to all poor Mr Snapt just cant do it.

Well this place is mine, well was mine.

Fraggs has been in, Snapt has spent so much time here that when it sold he had to pay capital gains tax and even the legendary Judderman has been here three weekends in a row I'm told.

It's not that it's hard...anyone with a pair of eyes can see the access it's just always so fecking busy when I turn up!!!!

Well I'd had enough I was getting in come what or who may, I was a man on the edge, I was going in this day.



Some history, stolen of course
(yes I know it's been done before and I don't care) (not the stealing the hist....you get the picture)

This is the former William Ridgway Tools factory site. William Ridgway and Sons company of Sheffield, manufacturers of augers, bits, wood-boring and motorising tools, was founded in 1878 and became a Private company in 1909, these works were founded in the 1930s. William Ridgway Tools merged first of all with Record Tools in 1974 to form Record Ridgway Tools Ltd. Record were another Sheffield company who were renowned for the quality of their vices and industrial clamps. Following the merger Record Ridgway Tools Ltd was made up of 14 UK Companies with 5 overseas companies. A later merger with a woodwork tools company called Marple (which was part-owned by Record and Ridgeway respectively before their original merger) led to the company becoming known as Record Marples Tools. Record Marples was taken over by the Swedish hardware manafacturer AB Bahco in 1982. Despite a management buyout leading to the company reverting to British ownership in 1985 the company struggled financially and following administration was acquired by U.S. based Irwin Tools in 1998 who have since moved production to China in recent years.


So I turned up early, I mean really early, I rose from the bolt hole (did you like what I did there?) at a fragglehunter stunning 03.16 and set off.
I met Snapt at the coffee procurement outlet know as Mccyd's (other much better outlets are available) and we headed off after what he described as breakfast but I've still not decided exactly what to call it.
The old fella's knees were playing up but it mattered not as he had a levitation device and, as wise man once said
"f*** me with a fish fork" we were in. It had been slain without so much as a whimper.
Enough b/s on with some pics.










Enough fecking around on the roof
























And that's it, done as easy as that!

It was time to leave this strange place called Yorkinshirecester and head back to Gods' country at full speed a very happy little urbexer.

9/10 from me on this Ijust wish it wasn't about to dissapear for ever to be replaced by folk with beards and skinny jeans.


Thanks for looking .
