    If the latter I'll probably give that one a miss, I can just about cope with heights but only if I know it's safe!
    This is the route we went (not my video).

    Uncharacteristically dangerous for me!

    OH WOW!!! you have much bigger balls than me if you went all the way up those conveyors!

    The wind kept picking up now and then when we were there and the noises that were coming from them were disconcerting even from on the ground, they must have felt like they were swaying all over the place when you were up there!

    I wonder if there is a safer way up from inside the building or something? Definitely something I'll be checking out next visit!

    There are two ways up the pulveriser, when I went a few years ago there was absolutely no sign of security anywhere so we went up the switchback concrete staircase on the outside, but you can go up the coal conveyors as well...

    Either way isn't good if you're not a fan of heights aha.

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.
