  1. Explored with -Raz- Bit of background; Coke has been produced on this site for 130 years, with the current works being the last independent coke works in the country until it was bought by Hargreaves (Norec) in 2005. It is estimated that the plant produces 11 megawatts of energy, for the less savyy that is enough energy from gas to power itself and 1,000 homes on top of that. It was also ranked one of Europe’s leading coke product producers. When the plant closed in December 2014 it sparked the end of the coal industry in Barnsley, an industry that at one time provided 50% of the jobs for males in the area. The plant is currently awaiting decommission as of this report date. The Explore; After a previous visit which was short lived and ended in "eyup flower tha nos tha shunt be on ere" we figured it might be a good time to make the return visit. Starting off the night terribly with not one but 2 locations that denied us access we set off for the Coke works on our way home. Once inside the perimeter we play the stealth game avoiding cameras so as not to alert the secca to our position and made our way steadily to the other side of the site where we found a control room full of buttons and cool looking pipes; Apon leaving the controls behind we headed over to the head gear and attemped to climb it but as we were doing it the security rumbled us and made the point that we werent wearing PPE. As an after thought we should noted to him that Hi-Vis jackets and nightime stealth dont particularly go hand in hand. So again i didnt see the whole site... Revisit is very much needed!! If you made it this far, thanks for reading
