It's been on the cards for a while, we'd seen reports and heard people talk about it so decided it was our turn to give it a go.

History - Thames Steel, in Sheerness Kent was a steel foundry until January 2012. The owners of the plant went into administration and workers came to work to be told that they no longer had a job. Nothing has happened since that day, everything lays exactly as it was, just with a layer of dust covering every last bit of history which was left behind. Another victim of Britain's lack of support for industry

Report - A disgustingly early 2am start was in order so that we used the cover of darkness to our advantage to gain access. We'd had a decent heads up from other members and after a 3hr drive a disappointing McDonalds and a quick driving recce of the fence we decided to park up and have a walk along the fence line. We eventually found our way in with the help of some strategically placed timber...

Once in we headed at speed for the main buildings to get out of the ice cold wind, with it still being dark we cautiously made are way around and eventually managed to navigate ourselves to small office/workshop where we lay low until the sun came up, It was black as a witches tit in there and the sun slowly made appearance piercing through holes and windows in the roof illuminating the epic size of the explore we had came for....
