Tour​

So i had never been fortunate enough before to sample what Le European Continent had to offer, In fact, i hadn't been fortunate enough to even leave the country in 3 years, due to using my Passport as ID on a night out and losing it in Nottingham Rock City, possibly after too many Jagerbombs and a whole lot of At The Drive in "One armed scissor" ...But i digress

Passport, inclusive of standard grumpy face photo now possessed, i was able to accept the "I" rather than CFTI so piled in a car with some fellas, and sped HIGHEST SPEED to le Chunnel, whilst pointing out all the way down from lovely Leeds, that we were all going to be underwater, yes in a tunnel, but under the whole of the sea, (its pretty bloody scary when you think about it, however we obviously made it alive), we checked out 3 what could be described as ruddy bloody good (not my words the words of Top Gear Magazine..) derps .
Drank Chocomel, (capri sun for me i'm trying not to get moobs) had a picnic and returned, It was good...here are some photos


Powerplant Gigawatt



This place probably gave the most meaning to the phrase PEAKED TOO SOON as it was our first stop. It was good. It was amazing in fact. I'm not to shy to say , this is probably the best industrial derp, in fact best derp i have ever been it, It's content, size scale and sheer pristineness totally fried my mind,
Belgiums larget Thermal power station, (JSt taught me that) and Turbines GALORE.... i think all 4 of us would have quite happily failed all other attempts that weekend with these photos in the bag, but like troopers we did press on and succeed

HF6


Our next stop, and again something i have never seen the likes of before.... Feeling slightly like i had walked onto the set of Terminator Salvation 2, or some equally grand dystopian Sci-Fi movie....The blast furnace is huge, i got maybe a 3rd of the way up, and i lost my legs, they became a substance less than jelly....

It had some nice decayed offices

Dr Nandos


Its actual name escaped me, so i just started calling it Dr Nandos, and it stuck.... It had lots of Crap Taxidermy, and was very nice...... as the name suggest i am all about Derphouses, however... i think i had been fully converted to industry by now.... As JSt mentioned in his report had fallen foul of staging, but the medical room was still really really good ....

As the risk of suffering the back lash of all the industrial lovers out there, I have never been that keen on those sort of sites, but you know what, these shots are superb and could well put me on the path to being an industrial convert!

Did you steal jst's settings?

Also wevsky, I do apologise but you made one fatal error in this statement.

Derphouse is a man, it is common knowledge.
