    I had seen this site posted recently on various forums from a couple of UK lads. I don’t think I had seen much posted from the place before…..or rather I just hadn’t paid much attention to it.

    After seeing photos from the turbine hall then this was a must have location on the euro derp weekend.

    I generally am not one to ask for locations or access so all I had to go on was a code name and a general area where it may be located. Unfortunately the whole area is full of disused industry and also large operational factories too. From google earth it is just a sea of industrial pipes, gantries and various rooftops of buildings. Me and Laura spent a while looking at possibilities and this narrowed down where it could be as only certain buildings would have fitted with the photos that we had seen from inside the place. Eventually we had settled on a building that we were sure was the right place.


    Arriving early morning and parking down the road we quickly hopped a fence onto a site which looked as though a lot of buildings had been demolished. We could see security up a track at the main gate and it was obvious they had been driving round too. A quick dash down the muddy path and through an open door and we found ourselves in a boiler house that was in a pretty sorry state. We didn’t spend long in here except to look for a way into the rest of the building.

    We must have spent the best part of an hours crawling, climbing and squeezing around trying to find a way into the main building whilst still unsure of whether we had the right location at all.

    Finally, we opened a door into an inconspicuous room with some equipment stored which all looked pretty old and obsolete, then as we turned the corner we were presented with Turbines!

    This place was pretty amazing and better than I had expected from seeing photos, the scale of the place is impressive with a mix of turbines with varying outputs from 6.5mw to 75mw well-spaced in the large hall.

    The place was perfectly decayed with flakey paint and water ingress but had remained pretty clean and looks as though it has managed to avoid the metal thieves and graffiti writers.

    We spent a long time here, in fact I was reluctant to leave but after a few hours decided we had seen enough. Hope you enjoy the pictures, I would recommend this place to anyone who’s enjoys these Industrial derps (who doesn’t)!!

    Nicely done, not seen very often is this one. Even the euro derpers themselves don't know about it... too busy queueing up behind others taking exactly the same photos in shitty chateaus to notice the epics under their noses.
