    Visited with the usual Bennys...

    Started with what was probably a locomotive shed, but was now used for storing old casting patterns...

    Then a walk around the ore preparation plant and workshops...

    and the iron ore conveyor control room...

    and then we followed the conveyor up a monster tower, over a mesh floor over some stinking water and rotting iron hulks...

    From the top of the tower...

    In one of the sheds...

    The sign from the bottom of the water tower, since used as a chimney...

    IMG_0730.jpg

    A soundproof control room in the structure somewhere...

    IMG_0735.jpg

    Pipes...

    IMG_0739.jpg

    Next, a storeroom, with soom interesting brochures and records...

    IMG_0741.jpg

    IMG_0744.jpg

    IMG_0745.jpg

    And then over to the finishing shed. Like templeborough, but with a bit more left. And the fact that it's still standing.

    Rail bogies just piled up...

    IMG_0747.jpg

    The shed...

    IMG_0750.jpg

    Casting patterns...

    IMG_0752.jpg

    Big metal things...

    IMG_0754.jpg

    Funky looking overhead crane. Nobody had been in these for a long time...

    IMG_0758.jpg

    The shed...

    IMG_0761.jpg

    Next, we found the electrical stores. A small forge and workshop area downstairs...

    IMG_0765.jpg

    and then three floors of spares, still there.

    Some old paperwork...

    IMG_0770.jpg

    An old telex machine...

    IMG_0771.jpg

    Some tell-tale light bulbs...

    IMG_0773.jpg

    Documents in the stores offices...

    IMG_0777.jpg

    and some technical drawings still on the table...

    IMG_0778.jpg

    There's still lots more to see here as well. Will definitely be back.
