    Another place i've neglected in favour of similar European industry, Thanks to Els for the heads up on this which surprisingly ended up a Belgiumesque walk in, great spot too if you like heavy industry.

    Thamesteel, in Sheerness Kent was a steel foundry until January 2012. The owners of the plant went into administration and workers came to work to be told that they no longer had a job. Nothing has happened since that day, everything lays exactly as it was, just with a layer of dust covering every last bit of history which was left behind. Another victim of Britain's lack of support for industry. Former owners the Al-Tuwairqi Group (ATG) took it back over in June, but since then there has been no news on what will happen to it except that it could cost up to £30million to decontaminate the land.
