This is quite a common explore and very easy to get to. A footpath through the wood takes you straight to it. Seems quite popular with dog walkers and cyclists.
Richard Johnson & Nephew owned the Wireworks and was set up in 1876. I believe in 1990, a company called Bridon took it over and eventually closed in 1996.
The company made telegraph wires, fencing and suspension cables. Apparently, Johnson's actually put in a tender for the suspension wires for the Brooklyn Bridge, which I thought was a pretty cool fact.
Again, not a lot is left but I did like some of the graffiti.
Without getting political, I do totally agree with this statement!
At the end of the lane, I found a quirky outbuilding. It looked as though the sides of the building was made out of old doors.
At the side of the building there was part of a shopping trolley! Random.
Someone's got a sense of humour. I will leave you with this image!! A nice easy explore.
