    Default Power Station IM, BE May '12


    This was the main reason for heading out there, as soon as I saw this posted a couple of months back I knew I had to see it. And by crikey what a place, it's instantly gone in my top 3 industrial explores ever. I hadn't had a feeling like walking into this place since the first time I stepped foot in Pyestock some 2+ years ago.

    Also a note, we did this on a baking hot day - the only baking hot day of the trip - and I was wearing a white t-shirt, I emerged from the place a few hours later with the shirt closer to black than white. So try and wear something dark....

    Also I suffered mega tripod fail so unfortunately a lot of my photos came out wank - luckily viewing them in 800px hides most of the shoddiness. And having just whacked my head proper hard on a concrete truss I wasn't feeling the cooling tower access. Which means I want to go back.

    Peeking over the hill...there's our prize





































    Next time...



    Thanks for looking, more here if you can stomach the general fuzziness.
