A classic picture showing the full depths of what was the former dis-used Avon factory in Nunn Mills, Northampton. For unaware readers, this urban wasteland was a treasure chest for rich and jaw dropping graffiti. Some say the ex-Avon factory was the biggest graffiti area in Western Europe, writers from all over the UK spent many hours showcasing their skills to a admiring audience.

This paricular image is of the tall eastern located building on the site. On the ground level more or less every inch of the walls were covered in graffiti.
