    Yep, more reports from Redcar. Here's my take on the blast furnace.....
    Visited with @SpiderMonkey and Jamie_P

    Still need to have a look around Lackenby Works.
    Have a look at the power station if you haven't already ;)

    Few new bits. Keep at it. Every visit will bring more if people look further than what's been seen already.

    Nice once Andy, good to see some new bits here. I'm sure there's still way more to come out of this site, if I lived closer I'd be pushing further and further into some of the more obscure buildings around the edge of the place. :thumb

    It's a good 2.5 hours from me, but that's still close enough to have a few more visits and do exactly that. When I look at a map and see how much of the place I actually covered, it's minuscule! There is definitely a lot more there to be found.

    To be fair the vast majority of the process plant has been done now. It's the workshops and amenities that are outstanding. It's just a bit live in those parts still! Sat watching about 6 workers have a pizza delivered then go back inside the blast furnace workshops when I was there last week. Was a little unnerving as that was where I was just about to go check out as it looked dead!
