    Went back on at the weekend - beautiful morning so no excuse for sh*t photos this time. Visit curtailed by puncture on bike unfortunately.

    Log book in maintenance workshop



    Very very big building. About 100m from one end to the other



    um - switchgear



    sand hopper. looks like they just switched it off, went home and never came back




    conveyer that took the sand up to the 'very big building'



    serious bit of kit that drove the fans I think. Reminds me of something out of Phantom of the Opera for some reason



    generator of some sort



    general shot of site



    place is so big you could spend a whole day there.

    more pics here - including one of an orchid for all you wildlife lovers

    Some days you wake and immediately start to worry. Nothing in particular is wrong, it's just the suspicion that forces are aligning quietly and there will be trouble

    Borntobemild the site is definately a haven for wildlife, I saw deer around the back of the site once.
    That pic of the cat owning the machine is adorable:)

    Went back last weekend and took a few more pics.

    Lots of changes have taken place over the summer, with a number of buildings demolished or buried in spoil.
    The owners (Cemex) have a couple of Planning Applications out for the site and they seem to be 'tidying' it up.

    Great shame.

    Wow, that's amazing to see how the trees and bushes have grown and encroached so much since the last time. Great to see more photos. Cheers. :)

    Went past here today and noticed they have demolished some settlement tanks on the northern side of the disused railway line!!!! If you look at Borntobemilds 5th picture from the top this was the tank with the green coloured water in it. [IMG][/IMG]

DerelictPlaces is a forum for people with an interest in the history and documentation of disused, derelict and abandoned buildings to come together and share their experiences, photography and historical findings. Our military, industrial and historical heritage is fast disappearing under the pressure of regeneration, the need for new housing, and often through simple neglect; Our aim is to document these places before they disappear entirely.
