    Decided to venture out on a cold December morning and drive over to ROF Featherstone to have a look around. Wasn't expecting a great deal, as I realise it's been derelict for quite a while.

    After getting a little frustrated at the Sat Nav constantly wanting to take us onto the M6 toll we eventually arrived and took a drive around the site. It still covers a pretty large area, with a large prison overlooking some of the back area. So we parked up and made our way in. As usual, moving slowly through the buildings taking hundred's of pics meant we didn't get to the see the whole site, so I'll have to pay a return visit to make sure I didn't miss any gems. Also, getting to the end of the day and realising I'd been shooting at ISO800 for the whole day did lead to a scream I swore could have been heard throughout the site (pics didn't come out too bad, considering).

    A little history on the site:

    Onto the pics, will try and keep the number down a little:

    Typical building throughout the whole site, loads of rooms like this.

    View from the back of the site, near the prison. There are a lot of buildings outside this shot to both the left and right of this block.

    We eventually left due to fading light, hunger and frozen fingers but could quite easily have spent another 4 hours here.

    Edited to suit sensitive eyes


    Enjoy
