    The pictures don't do it justice, its a superb place and definatly worth an explore.

    Me and fieldy did discuss braving the water for a shot upwards of the middle of the cooling tower but decided against it.

    it was probably the best choice

    Glad you got to see the place. From what I've heard, places like this are fast disappearing.
    Yes, probably a wise choice to avoid the water -especially as Security seem to be more on the ball these days -there might have been Security in scuba gear, just waiting for the first foot to got under the surface...............

    Not wanting to mention much about security, but i think they have more issues with a missing road out the front of the site than us deciding if were stupid enough to go in the water at the base of the cooling towers!

    You know fieldy tho, he has no fear!!
