    Default Gartcosh Aggregate Mill, Scotland Feb 08


    Visited here in February with Nic. Just your run if the mill abandoned mill (please excuse the *cough* unintended pun).

    Chances are, that if you like conveyors, you'll like this place:)

    You're putting up some nice places mate. I'm loving the brown rusty/rickety thing going on with the conveyor belts! :)

    Oh yes, well into conveyors! What an excellent site! Really enjoyed seeing this. I'm hopelessly acrophobic so didn't get very far up the ladder to the conveyor at my local quarry explore, but I'm going to have to overcome that and go back to get more pics. You've got some cracking shots of yours, m2. Good stuff! :)

    Not at all, perhaps worded with economy so it might not come across as intended.

    Cheers folks, trying my best to clear out about 20 explores that are ready to be uploaded. Thats the industrial stuff nearly done.:)

    It could be construed as scrap, the probability of it being sold for that is high, but I wouldn't liken it to scrap as an explore. Apologies if i've got the wrong end of the stick.

    Scrap was the first thing that came to mind looking at your pictures, it basicly reminded me of a scrap yard I used to mess around in as a kid. I guess I was a bit vague, it's a good explore on your part, a good find;)

    I love rust, anything rusty interests me.

    Sad eh?

    Rust is great, until you have to fix the rusty part;)

    It does add character
