The History


I haven’t really got much in the way of factual history on these and the net didn’t really come up with much. But I can tell you a little about them that I know from living around here.


They were sat in the corner of the local coal yard when I was a kid, as the trains went from coal to electric the yard closed and sat empty for years, as kids in the late 80’s / early 90’s we built BMX ramps in there and rode the life out of the yard. Always staying away from the gasometers as our parents told us they where dangerous.


I can’t say I noticed when they disappeared but over the years the yard got redeveloped and flats and houses appeared. I guess I just assumed they had been pulled down…..


The Explore


Well I’d assumed wrongly….


A few weeks ago whilst sat in traffic, I noticed through the modern posh flats, the framework climbing into the sky. Hmm were they an “urbexable” thing?


After a quick look on here I realised they were.


Well this morning on the way to work it happened, I climbed them.


Not much to tell really, access was easy and they were ok to climb. The view over the town was amazing.


As always I hope you like the pics

Nicely done, good bit of daytime gas too.

Would say this it more industrial than high stuff though, as there's not an awful lot of height? Just my opinion anyway!
