    While on a euro derp trip with Starlight to tick off some of the bits on our list we were given the heads up by The_raw that there was a disused steelworks not far from some of the other bits we planned to visit.

    We didn’t really have much information about the place or anything to go off except The_Raw saying he walked in and didn’t see any one. We arrived to a load of temporary fencing around the site and some neighbouring industrial units still open with workers watching the two possible ways we had found to get onsite.

    After some walking around we managed to find a way into the main steel works. It was very much a case of…’the lights are on, but no one is home’.

    Everything was powered up and running, including the water in the urinal in the middle of the factory, & multiple gas heaters keeping the equipment heated to the required temperatures.

    We cautiously took a look around while sure someone would appear from a room at any moment, then upon entering the control room we were greeted with some French reggae blasting through the speaker system.

    After we had walked around for a few hours we decided to leave and check on another location just down the road. A sign indicted that this was the Foundry and actually a much older building owned by the same company. Despite being much older and partially stripped, there was still lights on, control panels flashing and control rooms powered up (although these were locked up tight).

    It took us ages to find a way into the older building but persistence paid off and I’m glad we took a look as there was a pretty nice turbine in the building and some cool control panels.

    Nice work mate, also liking that old bit. We had a quick nose around outside when we arrived but there were no obvious ways in. Ufortunately when we were leaving we had to make tracks as a police car came speeding into the site and went past us as we hid, dunno if it was there for us (most likely) but we didn't hang around to find out! :p

    That warm reggae-infused control room was one of the highlights of the day, along with finding the foundry :)

    It interested me soon as we walked past the outside but I expected much more Derp on the inside and definitely didn't expect there to be power.

    Cheers mate and cheers for the tip off on the place. We saw some security around the front of the place but once onsite we bumped into others walking round with cameras and didn't have any bother from security etc.
