    Default Thames steel


    Visited here with a small group.when norfolk explorer told us to go see this place as it's amazing,he was not wrong.the sheer scale of this place blew me away,machinery just left standing after the closure of the plant in 2012 and the loss of 350 jobs.its places like this that makes me sad,places that were once a hive of activity,just left standing,even in the offices it's just been left from the day they all went.but the place made for some great photo opportunities,had a lovely six hours,stress free and totally relaxing.







































    This was the white room.the whole control room was covered in a fine white dust.everything was covered,giving it a nice effect























    I like to go where others fear to tread.

    I personally like the pink stereo in the crane cab!! How random that Rainbow Dash is written on the white board in the meeting room?(Rainbow Dash was my little sisters favourite My Little Pony!!)

    MiM that is a phenomenal place. This needs to be done and soon! ;)
    And a dreadful thing from the cliff did spring. And its wild bark thrilled around. His eyes had the glow of the fires below. Twas the form of the Spectre Hound. 'Ha' yer fa'r got a dickey, bor?' 'Yis, an' he want a fule ter roide 'im, will yew cum?'
