A solo visit to the ex Templeborough Steel Works in Rotherham today. This place is now the Magna Science and Adventure Centre but there is SO much more to see than the normal ticket price will buy you;)

The steelworks has been through numerous owners during it's long history finally closing in the 1990's as far as I am aware under the ownership of British Steel. A very interesting place with some fantastic history behind it - more to follow later on the history front... Beyond the interesting views in the public areas there is some fantastic stuff in the fraction of the site that still remains...

Anyway... on with the photo's...
