sorry the photos aren't more interesting, there's only so many photos you can take of what's literally a pile of rubble!


the following 2 aren't my photos. this shows the powder house a couple of years ago:

Nice photos :) - just a tip for the future - provide a bit of history about the place, what it was, how it became derelict etc
