Visited the Templeborough steel works today with DBS. Not alot left inside, but what there is, its fantastic. The building is enormous, lengthwise. We were amazed at the structure, as the roof is only held up by the 4 surrounding walls, there is not colums rising from the floor up as you would expect to find.
I believe this was a rolling mill, is that correct? And reakon that the large machines with the huge chains was to move bar accros ready to be rolled, is that correct? (struggling to find more info about the place).
The inside walls were covered in graffiti, although some of it was very good.
