The Royal Gunpowder Mills in Waltham Abbey, Essex, is a fascinating place to visit, telling the history of gunpowder production on the site during the 1800’s, it’s uses, and later solid fuels (Cordite).  Aside from the exhibits and a brilliantly and literally explosive fun science for the kids, my photographers eye was taken walking around the buildings, many of which are now empty, and as you can see, derelict (although there are ambitions to restore them).  Images were taken as monochrome in-camera with a sepia filter added in Photoshop.
