    Linked into my previous report, i thought it was time to revisit the docks area.
    Wasnt really aiming to achieve anything today, just nose around.

    This is how Northern ireland Screen advertise the place

    The paint hall was part of the great old H&W shipyards, but is now rented out as a film studio - Tom Hanks was here last year filming 'City of Ember'

    The hall as seen from the waters edge - lots of demolition round about leaves it standing isolated

    Drudger/digger in the grounds next door

    Three old steam cranes, fenced.

    I didnt feel like climbing over and getting closer - these shots taken by just snapping over the fence.

    [​IMG]
    Yeah - RIGHT ! sign put up during filming

    [​IMG]
    All doors boarded up tight, except one !


    [​IMG]
    This is just one of four halls

    [​IMG]
    The painters worked in suspended cable cars - fancy a race ?

    [​IMG]
    View from the top - ish

    [​IMG]
    Escape kit - might come in handy

    [​IMG]
    getaway vehicle sorted - if needed

    [​IMG]
    Engine room of the mother ship ?
    This is the main corridor between the two sets of halls - this is real, not film set

    [​IMG]
    looking into one of the halls - riggers kit left lying around

    [​IMG]
    Pipes and valves - playing with my head torch

    Time to look for stairs and / or ladders

    [​IMG]
    these extraction pipes are HUGE, and dusty - mask on time !

    [​IMG]
    these lead from the extractors - up on the roof !

    [​IMG]
    I spy security - but they dont spy me !

    [​IMG]
    The view East - HMS Caroline, a WW1 veteran, built in 1914 and still serving

    [​IMG]
    stairway / rusty ladder to heaven

    This place was amazing - just in awe of its size, and its potential

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    random plumbing

    RANDOM SIGNS

    [​IMG]

    Oh that's sweet! Basically the mother of all spray booths :)
    Love the "engine room" shot, I bet that's been used in a few films without much dressing at all.
    Here's hoping the fenced off cranes get a new life eventually.
