Colthrop

I noticed this place Google maps while checking out a pillbox nearby I thought it was an old sewage works. Then while checking out the pillbox , I could see this large concrete tower that looked like a hopper. Curiosity got the better and I walked on along the towpath to see if I could get a closer shot. Well would you know it the fence was down in one place and it was rude not to pay a visit, I don't have a clue as to what it is I can only think it was the old paper mill. These are a few of the photo's I took round the place.

 The first view I had of the place, I wanted to see what it was.

  1. Fascinating! I often wonder why these places were just left with somuch still there. But if they weren't then there would be nothing for nature to reclaim or for people to explore
