    Being local to here we headed over and after our last visit when we was greeted by lots of workers and lorries we didnt have high hopes, suprisingly made our way round here rather easily and had 2 close calls with the blind as a bat security guard. Lots of cool stuff here need a revisit in the daylight



    Coke Manufacturing (Monckton)
    Coke has been made on the Monckton site at Royston near Barnsley in South Yorkshire for over 130 years.

    Until December 2014, Monckton was the only independent coke production plant in the UK, and was ranked as one of Europe’s leading producers of high-quality metallurgical coke.
    On 12 December 2014, the Company confirmed that, with no significant improvement in market conditions or customer demand, Monckton was to close, with coke production ceasing during that month.

    The Monckton plant is now being de-commissioned and this is expected to take approximately six months.

    The gas from Monckton coke ovens is used in a combined heat and power plant that can generate up to 11 megawatts of electricity. Not only does this supply all the electricity needed on-site, we actually sell our surplus electricity to the national grid – enough to provide power for more than 1,000 homes.



    Here's my take on this place

    Lovely images, shame this place didn't live up to expectations, I think we were all hoping for another Cwm. Nice work nonetheless.

    A note of warning to you, Razstafarian and your colleague. You should know that we have extensive high-def CCTV footage of your visit. We have provided the Police with these images (Peruvian beanie, olive jacket and black joggers sound familiar?) Police are stepping up attention to the site and our own site patrols have been increased.

    Simple message to you - and others who feel so inclined to pay us a visit: Keep out.

    You are trespassing and putting yourselves in harm's way. Trust me, it's not worth the risk....

    I take it you were drinking a safety brew instead of watching the monitors at the time then? :brew :brew :brew

    Then again it was a night visit so you probably had something else in your hand as you watched the porn on the monitors instead ;)
