Visited with Appo.

This place has been on my list of things to do for a while now, having asked Appo the night before if he fancied it some time this week I got a call the next morning at 9 a.m asking if i was still up for it, too right I was.

So by 10.15 we had infiltrated the place and set about exploring this gigantic building. There was so much stuff to look at and the place was huge to explore. The place did however maintain an eerie atmosphere as though you were not the only people in the place.

Information from Appo;

The Excelsior Printing and Bookbinding Works was originally opened on the Monday 4th July 1870 and the owner at the time was Mr John Heywood. At the time when it was opened this place could take on upto 750 employees and was one of the largest of it kind.

Not much history can be found for this epic place but Clare Tooling Systems occupied the building around the late 80's early 90's. many of the tools used have been left behind aswell as alot of paperwork office equipment and files.

Slightly Picture heavy, but there was so much to see in this place.
