    USA Veolia Industrial Water

    This plant treated the wastewater that was produced by the 5 Pickler at a steel mill. I believe it was closed sometime around 2013. The place was pretty much untouched by vandals or explorers. The mess inside was created by the demo crew as it is slated for demolition soon. Everything was left...

    Water tower quick explore, swindon

    Built in 1871 but had been refurbished at some point.  Now, I don't do heights.. So I was chuffed to see my mate practically run towards it in excitement and go first. It was pretty high and the grated floor was not ideal if you wanted to avoid looking down.  The tower probably stands around...

    Belgium Fabrique de l'eau

    My first post to this forum. Today we visited a factory somewhere in Belgium.  It used to be a plant where soda but mostly water was bottled and then prepared for distribution to grocery stores in Belgium and surrounding countries.  The factory stopped being productive because of  a severe...

    Former water tower. Don't know much about this place, but it was cool to visit something different. Didn't made it to the top, too lazy  :wink: . When we just finished this place, security came along, luckily they didn't caught us. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

    Ackworth Water Reservior, Wakefield - Sept 15

    Explored with Raz on the off chance we could get in Bit of background; As the village of Ackworth grew significantly in the 1970s with several large new housing developments, water pressure became a problem. The solution was to give Ackworth a water tower of its own. Previously the water tower...

    Low Bradfield water works - May 15

    Built in 1913 to treat water from the local reservoirs & closed in 1995, it's totally trashed & has turned in to something of a graffiti gallery for all the locals. There's a pretty vibrant graffiti scene in Sheffield, & anywhere as trashed as this is fair game, especially if you...
