    Default Recycling Plant, Worthing - May 2019


    First report, but I've got quite a few that I need to catch up on so any advice/feedback will be gratefully received.

    History
    Quite hard to find too much about this place so anything else anyone can find please comment.
    From what I can tell the complex was used to transfer the district's waste from dustcarts to larger vehicles which then took it to a landfill site in Small Dole.The council then built another site somewhere nearby and left this site to ruin. It closed for good on December 31st 2006,and is in remarkable condition considering the length of time it's been derelict.

    The Find
    Found this one through my companion, she had almost exact directions. But it's a pretty easy find and entry. Exploring was fairly straight forward as well, nothing major limiting access. Unfortunately it had been pretty much completely gutted of any equipment. Few pidgeons around and a couple of kids as we were leaving but otherwise we had it to ourselves.

    Photos























    Feedback on photos is appreciated as well please guys (apologies for the model in most of these, she has no awareness of cameras haha)

    The photos are possibly slightly over-exposed for me, but looks good overall. :) Thanks and welcome.

    Your 'use' of the model in the shots of the very large interior spaces is actually very useful. It allows one to add scale to the place and allows one to see actually how large the space is. So for me, these images are very informative and all the more interesting for that - look forward to seeing more of your work.
