    Visited with clebby and ImmortalOwl.

    I thought that clebby's semation of this place was rather good, so I used it. Hope you dont mind too much mate :thumb

    Anyway, the photos...

    The first thing you see when you get anywhere near this place are the chimneys, conveyers and the main silo, all towering well over 120 feet high. Stupidly, I didn't take any photos of the main silo :banghead

    Once inside, we were greeted by hundreds of small coking ovens...

    Although It only closed in 2002, the whole pace is beginning to be consumed by the elements, prodominantly by water. The whole place was damp, and some areas were completely cut off.

    We decided to leave the silo until the end, incase we were caught. Instead, we headed for the boilers. The ground floor was a mess with not much to see, but above were three massive boilers. Each was about 15 feet tall. These were obviously very important in the coking procedure.

    To end our trip, we headed for the silo taking pictures on the way...

    The views from the top were spectacular, but by this time I was very tired so didn't take many photos.

    Cheers :thumb
