    Greetings, here’s the first of buildings that we explored on our 5 day trip across Germany, Poland, Czech Republic, Slovenia & Austria.

    This is a papermill, much alike those seen elsewhere in Germany. It has its own perfectly formed little powerplant, which is what these photos concentrate on.

    The rest of the mill did not appear immediately accessible and on peering through some windows, the impression we got is that it was totally empty.

    As with all of these buildings, when their own situation is the thing that protects them (i.e, they’re remote and not on the “beaten track”) they seem to last a little longer and fall into that delicious decayed state.

    It seems that the mill has been out of use since at least 2000, with documents / calendars ending in 1999.

    With two Steinmuller boilers (Build years 1954 & 1965) and a single peppermint green Siemens turbine (Build year 1954) it was of that classic Siemens layout, with the building seemingly designed around the “standard” 2130kw Steam turbine.

    The drawings in the maintenance folder showed the turbine in a 'typical' building section, it made me wonder whether Architects / engineers would be given this as a template to shoehorn into the building they were designing for a specific factory / site, or whether Siemens had their own building design department?

    I’d figured out the whereabouts of this particular plant about 9 months ago and had been trying to find the time to get over to Germany to visit it before it found its way onto any sort of trail, tourist or otherwise. Unfortunately there was a little graffiti, mainly on the outside and a couple of smashed windows but nothing major. As always, if you're arsed about seeing it then let me know and I'll tell you where it is.

    It was similar in context to this larger paper production operation that I'd uncovered 3 years ago: http://www.28dayslater.co.uk/powerplant-cyklonkessel-germany-november-2013.t85500

    Here are some photos:

    Haven't been able to stop looking at this place since seeing one of yours crop up on Flickr; photography top of its game and a site that makes me go 5p 10p.

    I'd happily marry someone in here.

    I should be booking time to get over!
