    Hi,

    I'm a new member.

    Went to the old foundry. They have improved security. But it is very worth visiting. It is a large site. Easy to get lost. I will attach pics...

    Pics are uploading.

    It has been stripped of anything of value. Not that I was going there for that reason.

    It is quite a creepy place.

    I kept thinking there was somebody behind me. But it was just birds.

    Bear with me, on the pics....

    The site has been shut off with the electrical power, so it is safe in that respect.

    But there are some big holes if you're not careful.

    Some of the place hasn't been touched in I guess 20 years (Floppy computer discs and tape!)

    Pics are almost done.....

    They had a surgery with a creepy green chair. Almost looked like some kind of execution device !

    Sorry, I've been awake too long...........

    This scared me (I did not write the symbol). But it does look like some kind of gas chamber.

    Offices are trashed...

    Sorry, for some reason pics of the coolant pools are not uploading...

    Okay, I have it....


    03052011382 by zed72, on Flickr

    Okay, give me your best estimate of that pool....... was it used for main coolant or underwater pressure testing of valves ?

    I don't know someone check the patent office.

    On a side note, I would really like to see wat is on some of those old 5 and 1/4 inch floppys.... There are loads of them around. Who knows ?

    Came across some tins of Calcium Carbide..... (sorry very blurred)


    03052011371 by zed72, on Flickr

    Here's a zoom a better pic of one tin

    19082011652 by zed72, on Flickr

    I reckon that is less than 15 ft.

    Even a wooden step if you look carefully. Then what a view that would be !!!!

    Of course you'd end up arrested and probably detained.

    UrbanX, I believe this is an underground storage. But I was not going down there.

    Hi,

    I see that you've managed to get pics working, but please post all the pictures you want to add in 1 post, not each picture in an individual post. You can edit your posts by clicking on the "edit" button on the bottom right the post you want to edit.

    I have merged the posts for you this time but in the future please put everything you want to post in one big post, not 25 small ones.

    Thanks.
