Hi All,

Well something completely different this week!

After shooting elsewhere nearby, we decided to have a look inside this abandoned industrial complex.

Needless to say it was a mess of massive proportions.

The Maltings as it is known has had a chequered history.

The first building was completed in 1899 and then additional buildings completed over the years in the manufacture of malt for beer.

It has had a series of fires as well which resulted in closures of the plant until finally shutting down in 1980.

We couldn’t believe our luck when we found this sofa sitting under the hole in the roof.

It certainly adds to the shot and we were most fortunate to shoot it when we did as it was gone the next week!

I must admit that the senses were heightened in here as I had been told that people often come here over night and party etc.

I am really pleased with how this one turned out.

Anyway, enough of me carrying on…….enjoy!
Paul
