I had a wonderful time here, Cheryl, but It wasn't safe and still open to anyone. Just outside this doorway there was a sheer drop of about 7 metres!

I think there may be plans to take over this site and turn it into living accommodation, Marie-claire. Let's hope there is some sensible redevelopment.

Thank you. There has been some vandalism, but it could have been much worse. I'm surprised no-one has been injured here.

A great composition ~ sad building though ~ too much skinny dipping must have ruined sales xxx

Skinny dipping in Norway, Nick? I think they'd have done better by manufacturing wet suits. :-)

Thank you, Ulrich. It was a very interesting day, and we eventually motored down to the coast.

If you've now read my previous comment, Keith, you may want to retract your compliment. ;-)

It must have been a pretty good shot to start with. Most shots need some PP especially if you shoot in Raw format. It's the end result that matters.

Thank you, John. I'll have a look at it in B&W. The yellow star button seems to be on strike. :-)))))

Many thanks, Reinhard. The building was dry inside, so the roof was sound.

A great capture, it looks in good condition, it would have been burnt down in Leicester

Amelia Heath club has replied to Peter Castell club
The roof was in very good condition, Peter, and the factory is not really on the beaten track. I wonder if it has all been made secure now. This doorway opened up to a 20 foot drop! At least there was no external cladding.

So sad.

Amelia Heath club has replied to Pam J club
I think some good will come of it, Pam. At the time they were talking about converting the whole building into living quarters. Let's hope that has happened by now.

What a cool lost place! It seems, Norwegians don't need many swimsuits;-)

Amelia Heath club has replied to Gudrun club
Many of the hotels have swimming polls, Gudrun. And besides - I have swum in the North Sea in Norway. But on the whole, the clothing investment should have been geared up to suppling outdoor wet weather gear. They'd have been making a mint by now. :-)

Gudrun club has replied to Amelia Heath club
Well, wet weather gear is dominated by Helly Hansen- don't know how many firms the Norwegian market can support...
