    I love industrial stuff. It’s so interesting to see all of the heavy industry that most people wouldn’t normally get to see for themselves. The ridiculous scale of the massive machinery, the feeling of danger when you’re surrounded by dodgy-ass chemicals and hazard signs, and the baffling complexity of pipes and cables seemingly entangled around each other and going to f*ck knows where. Awesome.

    Info:

    Huntsman is a large scale global company, incorporating a Pigments Division which specializes in the manufacture of titanium dioxide (TiO2) - under the brand name Tioxide. The pigments are designed to “add brightness, whiteness and opacity to thousands of consumer products; from household decorative paints and industrial coatings on ocean liners, cars and steel-framed buildings, to computer housing, sporting equipment, printing inks and cosmetics.†Huntsman Tioxide has been producing titanium dioxide for over 75 years.

    The Grimsby plant was closed due to it being the company’s oldest and least economical plant, combined with the economic state at the time.



    In the early hours of the morning we began our trip over to Grimsby, pulling out our best rapping skillz to some drum n bass while NickUK drove like a madman over snake pass. We’d picked a good day for it, the sun was out and it was nice and hot, so when we got into the site we were able to see it in all its glory. As we got into the main building, we found it was covered in layers of white powder. We’d heard that parts of the site contained nuclear material and were radioactive, so we tried to avoid these areas, although on one occasion I think we may have wandered into one of them for a short period of time..
