    Default Vintage 1920s Control Room - July 18


    Vintage 1920s Control Room








    Took two weeks to finally see the control room, and after an ugly climb involving getting my tripod tangled in some wire, we were finally in. The rest of the surviving property was good to see as well, as everything about the place is prime industrial abandonment. The mossy decay and old signage makes up for the lack of much in the structure.



    I particularly liked the connecting bridge







    Inside the larger building



















    The control room - with some kids shouting at us from the local school, and knowing the slow climb back out, we only had time for a few shots.





















    That's all for that. You can see this site in the second half of this documentary styled video. It's coverage begins at 9.28. We show the property's past, present and future through cinematics and narration.

    Look at that banister! Such detail and a lovely bit of wood for a short stretch of staircase in a 'working' building, they had pride in their buildings in them good ol' days.
