Gray Dunn were glasgow biscuit makers based in Kinning Park Glasgow. Founded in 1853 they continued in business until granted the appointment of Queen Victoria they built the factory in Stanley Street in 1862 and carried on the tradition of making their wares till a fire thirteen years later destroyed the building. They then rebuilt the factory and carried on as normal making their biscuits, cakes and fine breads until sold around 1912 to the Bilsland Bakery.

Awesome place but a few wee man traps set in it if yir no careful... Ceiling tiles laid over holes to catch the unwary off guard.

I make it a rule if i cant see the floor i dont walk on it and it was only when i was on the floor beneath i noticed some of them.

Essential advice if you go into derelict buildings.

There are people out there who lay traps and set the building on fire for some kind of perverse gratification knowing a firefighter can hurt themselves falling down a hole, sometimes right through it. Often, as you've seen, they lay traps to catch even the most unwarey of visitors - sadly its the society we seem to be living in.

Brother in law furnished me with that essential piece of information as well as never enter a door without first figuring out is there an escape route.

Wonderful set Cybers!!! I've been scoping the place out for a while but I've seen the plod too often in that area - enough to put me off for now.

Pics of the top floors are great
