"Steetley Magnesite Works was originally built to produce magnesium, the site closed after two failed attempts to keep it running in 2005. Many parts of this site have now been demolished but any further demolition has been halted because the site is a habitat for nesting birds. The plan was to build 500 homes on the site but it currently stands still with no further development planned in the immediate future.
The chimney is of course the focal point of this site, however, there are many outbuildings, labs and offices still standing on the site with paperwork from Britmag and CJC strewn amongst the rubble. Also, if you are to visit then the settling tanks of which there are about 10 still standing provide perfect ammunition for some stunning photographs."

I wish I had seen it before they started demolishing it.
