After seeing the recent reports, Shadow myself and Jesus (not from this forum) decided to pay this place a visit.

This is possibly the most impressive industrial building I've been in to date. Everything is on a massive scale, it has two of the largest gantry cranes I've ever seen, as well as an impressive array of pipes, control rooms and big industrial equipment. I could have spent all day in this place - sadly we couldn't as there were other places we wanted to go.

1. Gantry cranes outside, these are nothing compared to the ones inside the building!

2. Our goal looms closer . . .

3. Success, we made it into the belly of the beast, and my what a beast she is!

4. Everything is on a massive scale

8. Mind yourself, there's no safty rail here!

9. The two cranes really are an engineering masterpiece on a massive scale

11. We didn't realise how high we'd climbed until we had to decend again, it's deceptive because everything is so big.

12. My favourite pic from the day (for some reason)

Thanks for looking,

Maniac.
