lil place in my backyard...
i've been coming to this spot for over a decade. tragically i've only picked up a camera a few years back. it's nice to be able to visit a location many times in the continuation of self improvement and documenting the destruction of a location. heres a few shots from over the past year:
pano from last summer. i ran here one day as the sun set. i wanted to catch the lighting.
belly of the boiler.
behind the controls. another scrapper hard at work i see.
the next year would be sad times as kids from all over began to populate this place. i used to be able to walk around for weeks without running into a soul, and now there could be 30 kids here.
in a short period of time shity taggers would desicrate the temple. angering the gods.
even the snow doesnt cover that grime.
she sure is a beauty tho. i've been to quite a few generating stations and none compare
it felt like a train station grande hall. standing in the freezing cold taking a pic of snow falling (or ceiling)
everyones favorite hallway which was in a movie for 3 seconds. (relax-its photoshopped.....or is it???)
until next time . . .

The Rusting Wolseleys...
Wolseley Motors Limited was a British motor vehicle manufacturer founded in early 1901 by the Vickers armaments combine in conjunction with Herbert Austin. It initially made a full range topped by large luxury cars and dominated the market in the Edwardian era but the Vickers brothers died in 1915 and 1919. In 1921, expanding rapidly, it manufactured 12,000 cars and still continued to be the biggest motor manufacturer in Britain. Over-expansion led to receivership in 1927 when it was bought from Vickers by William Morris as a personal investment and years later moved into his Morris Motors empire. After the Second World War its products were "badge-engineered" and it went with its sister businesses into BMC, BMH and British Leyland where its name lapsed in 1975.
No idea how this collection of Wolseleys ended up rotting away in this field, must be a dozen or so slowly being reclaimed by the elements...
Thanks for looking...
A recent visit to this old Power Station which has been decommissioned since 2000.
A planning application has been approved to demolish it and replace it with a new sustainable energy plant. Although approval was granted in 2012 nothing seems to have happened since.
Lots of stuff left in situ and it's all decaying nicely.
