Taken me a few days to get pictures sorted (film scans got messed up, so nothing from the film cam is usable :mad:).
Following on from my complete failure of a night (dead party>dead pub>failure jesmond cinema>failure whitely bay dome>failure gateshead carpark>angel of the north>dalton success)

sunrise in this building was pretty special, I was there about an hour earlier, so lay'd low until the light came up, and boy I'm glad I waited :)

again, really hard to capture, but the low light/hi contrast added to the special'ness of it!

victorians needless attention to detail was prevalent throughout the building, excessive plasterwork, stonework, hand detailing on the machinary and structure, simply awesome!

I love the rust on the chain. its pretty much the ONLY decay in th whole building!

BIG link! and ceramic bushs? very fancy, and all looks like its hardly been used!

low pressure cylinder, its about 6-10feet across!! and about 1/2stories high!

more needless attention to detail in the boiler house! beautiful (clean) stained glass with only a few pains been replaced with clear.


all in a fantastic explore, wish I could have stuck around longer but needed to get out before people were awake.

and for anyone that goes next time, look out for my mars bar! I dropped it somewhere in the lower floor I think!
