    I'll resize the oversize pics tomorrow when photobucket catches up

    Been meaning to get back up here for ages. Finally found the time.
    explored with my daughter, "Toots".

    Cochno Waterworks were built around 1907 and went offline around 1995 or so. Planning permission is imminent for a 32 bed nursing home on the site seemingly.

    so first view you get as you drive up

    watertower looks promising till you notice someone has cut off the bottom part of the ladders. note to self, time to buy a telescopic ladder.

    getting through here was even tighter than it looked
    [​IMG]

    helluva little space between this ladder and the wall and only a tiny opening above so I did the decent thing and sent Toots up instead

    think the pikeys got beat by the pyromaniacs to this room
    [​IMG]

    then I looked up
    [​IMG]

    nice bit of mosaic in the floor

    watch yer footing FFS Toots

    its quite a stretch gettin up here
    [​IMG]

    well pikied control panel
    [​IMG]

    next, (top I think) floor is about 2 inches deep of pigeon shit and loads of nests so I went back down
    [​IMG]

    nature is slowly taking over
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    and that was us walked the length of the place
    [​IMG]

    on the way out I noticed this and thought "ah, saved me puting in a sig".
    [​IMG]

    loads more to see in there and the view from the watertower over the clyde valley must be phenomenal. worth a return visit with a ladder.

    cheers for looking
