Needing a to have a day out last Sunday, I finally got around to doing something I've been meaning to for years - taking some photos of Rugby cement works.
While I'm sure many people will consider it ugly, every time I drive by on the way to the office, it fascinates me.
A bright Sunday provided a great opportunity to wander around and take some shots of all the odd-shaped buildings. Access isn't great, but then that's no surprise. Plenty of trees around the edges of the site camouflage things a little too, so getting in before they are in full leaf isn't a bad idea either.
I've no idea what most of these buildings do, but simply as a guide for concrete colours and interesting industrial shapes, they are worth a look.
After this, I trundled to the railway station, out of curiosity more than anything else. Here, I found Euro car park that offered a superb view of the main line from the upper deck. A bit of a fight with the parking website later, I'd paid my pound for the day, and sat reading while trains went by.
Traffic, on a Sunday, is mostly Pendalios and other sorts of units, so I didn't bother with many photos. There were a couple of freights with proper locos on the front though.
For a few hours, I just enjoyed sitting reading and watching trains. Very restful, I'll do it again one day.
