Tucked away at the back of a disused quarry is a factory that made ashalt roofing products such as roofing felt. I can find little about the history of the place but it seems clear that part of the site is much older. 
After we finally arrived on site the first thing we find is the office and admin block, and as usual, it was trashed. But as we went further into the factory we were pleasantly surprised as it was pretty much intact with little graffiti and no signs of metal thieves being here. 
Unfortunately the laboratories were in worse shape, smashed like the offices.
By far the best bit was the tower, with all sorts of mechanisms, chutes and controls, all intact too.  With easy access and no secca this was a nice relaxed mooch, just the job fer a mid week mooch made all the better by my sisters provision of sarnies
