Look inside this abandoned biohazard factory that now looks post-apocalyptic after being left to rot.

The lost location on the North Wales coast, bears more resemblance to the scenes from a film than a plant that played a part in petrol production.

The site closed for a final time 15 years ago, after struggling to keep sales above float after a stern reduction in the use of leaded petrol.

It would strip bromine from seawater before processing it for use in petrol.

After ceasing production, the factory that initially opened in the 1940s, took a further nine months to decommission and decontaminate.

Urban explorer Warren Tepper, 32, visited the remnants of the mostly raised buildings, viewing the intriguing mould and moss that have formed inside.

While exploring the large corridors and bays, he also discovered decontamination gowns strewn on the floors, rusted tool box remnants and more.

Warren, from Hampshire, said: “It was very exciting walking around this place and at the same time it was also creepy as it was such a big place.

“We were very excited, as the first building we walked in to had two biohazard suites inside – the one at the desk and one on the floor in the stretcher.

“We then went into the other buildings and found more and more as we went around. Then the last building we went into had the medical chair with all the medical items left on the shelf.

“Ever since I started exploring this has always been one of the places I really wanted to see

“The top thing on my list would have to be the eye chart and the medical office with the chair I have wanted to see that for so long.

“It was very quiet walking around, the only thing we could here was the sea gulls and the wind blowing the blinds in windows.

“It was eerie and creepy as we didn’t know if we were alone.

“Due to the size and the location of the place, I think it is one of the biggest places that I have visited that mostly was natural decay.

“There were a few bits that mindless vandals had been in and smashed a few items, they also set it on fire.

“It was also amazing so see that most of the bits had been left in this place.”
