Shouldn't Throw Stones
I am currently a night watchmen at the ex Pilkingtons Glass HQ in St Helens Merseyside. My project investigates the ex/current employees, remains and archives of the site. The vast landscape and buildings are currently owned by a property company. At it's peak throughout the 60-70's there would have been over 25,000 people employed, working or passing through the site producing all kinds of glass related products, particularly the revolutionary 'float glass process' perfected by Godfrey Pilkington. Now the site is partially used as office space for businesses such as outsourced NHS departments, game designers, local SME;s and charities who reside in the shell of this listed, brutalist architectural site. As part of my night patrols I often find left items from by gone eras and photograph hidden rooms and abandoned facilities.
