    This is Skinningrove Jetty, built in the 1800s and closed along with the nearby mines in the 1950s. Trains used to run down the slope to waiting ships at the jetty and you can still see train tracks to this day.

    On the end of the jetty is a very strange pump/valve room thing which you can clamber into. There are about 1000 dead crabs in there.

    Up on top of the hill is a fully operational steel works. A strange place indeed. Last year, some idiot fell down one of holes while fishing pissed or something.

    Explored with Squirrel68 who didn't like the old broken pier one bit :thumb

    First some old pics I found on the net of when the thing was in use.

    How it looks today. How they got trains back up here is anyone's guess.
