    3rd on my SSI redundant sites list,
    1st being South Bank Coke Ovens & 2nd being Lackenby Steel Works.
    Been wanting this for as long as I can remember,
    always thought about it each time the train passed by,
    but never felt comfortable attempting it while live.
    Once I read about the official closure,
    I began too plan an explore even though I didnt know the surroundings well.
    Saying that the recee became the explore.
    I walked at least 2 miles across industrial & no mans land too reach here,
    well worth the effort though.
    The site is vast with miles of conveyors, easy too get lost once your in them.
    It was blowing a Hurricane, ( literally) difficult in parts too get about
    so strong the corrugated was rattling & some of it torn off the sides of the conveyors.
    the electricity is on, which wasnt a surprise.
    Abit eerie as there wasnt anybody about,
    even though the draft was howling through gaps & pipes.
    The site is absolutly filthy with coal dust & particles everywhere, as expected.
    This caused havoc with the lens of my camera, which continues too occur.
    I will probably have too buy a new camera.

    Sinter Works Redcar, by stranton

    opened in 1978 by British steel,
    became Corus in 1998 - 99.
    Then Tata in 2007 & SSI in 2012, the latter went bankrupt in October 2015 & closed the site
    which included the Coke Ovens & Steel Works too the west & Blast Furnace too the east.

    Needs more conveyor pics mate :thumb

    Hope you asked permission to post it up ? Wouldn't want to upset anyone ;)

    Come out decent enough before you killed your camera. Maybe it's time for an upgrade now ? Save some of that Trifle money & finally invest in a decent camera that can handle low light
