Stumbled accross this heavily overgrown place while looking for The National Shire Horse Center (http://www.urbexforums.co.uk/showthread.php/9691-National-Shire-Horse-Center-Yealmpton-Nr-Plymouth-30-08-10?highlight=shire), its off the main road in between the village of Yealmpton and the Shire Horse center, with loads of kilns dotted around as well. The main building of the weighbridge is standing plus some curious sloped concrete "hopper" type construction where I guess the carts/lorries were loaded up before weighing.

Have searched hard for a history but with no luck.. we wondered what the smell was, and then found out! :eek:

"Hopper" building we assume loaded the vehicles up...
