    Excellent shot David almost looks like a prison as well.

  • Cheers Steven – I bet it felt like a prison to those working there too

    Splendid capture of this foreboding looking place. All you needed was stormclouds. :)) >Ron<

  • I’m grateful this place wasn’t part of the Portmeirion factory when I worked there – on nights
    Maybe I should try a ‘spooky’ version for Halloween
