The Old Rose Factory!

Its been years since I went out to the old Rose Factory (I think thats what it was). We used to skate inside the derelict walls and hang out. I was amazed to find it still standing so many years later although it isn't in great shape. Some bright spark decided to dig up the floor and put in pot holes to try and stop kids skating inside, fail!

The ramps and grind boxes are still in tact and skateable with the help of some wooden boards and some handy gents have even build their own mini transition park in the back room. And as with most of these dead spaces it has become a beacon to the local graff artists with paint on almost every wall. If you live in Aberdeen and know Jacobs Ladder, have a wee climb down and see for yourself.
