    Default CWM Coke plant, Beddau, June 09


    Now this was a right gem. Right up my bag being industrial too. Scotty and I's 3rd explore today.
    We were overwelmed by the sheer size of the site and the amount of stuff left.

    Cracking colours and bit of machinery. We spent 3 hours here. Could of spent more but we had already been up 16 hours.

    Still working around this in a clockwise circle gave us loads to look at. Lovely workshop with well random things including a very scary home made furnice this for gawd knows what!!
    A car and of course a supermarket trolly were also in the mix. Anyhow, moving on to the plant proper there was just so much it was hard to take it all in.

    The place was covered in black dust from the coke. It was everywhere.

    It reminded me of Pyestock with the pipes running through the plant and lots of control rooms and the like. I was in awe.

    Took loads so more here

    That site is massive, had two separate 4hr visits there and I've not come across that MG! Think I've barely touched on half the site, it really is that big.

    Great pics, good use of ultrawide. ;)
