    Visited with Horus, Forsaken and Goan.
    Horus has covered the place very nicely already here , he's got some lovely shots of the history and construction as well, but I thought I'd bung some of my pics up anyway.

    Its a really photogenic location, and although its still in use, theres something about it that gives it an abandoned feel. Plus getting into the machinery spaces was a bonus :thumb
    enjoy...

    The escalators were stopped on the night that we visted as a group, but I was bored one Saturday and popped back, had a mess around and ended up with these shots;
