Found this place by comparing a vague YouTube video and some info I've found here and there, then confirmed with Google maps satellite. Place was pretty big, but unfortunately pretty destroyed by vandals over time. Here are some pictures I took on my scouting trip there. Will go back for more/better shots.

Looks a pretty cool explore to me. How far are you from Philly? There's an epic power station there. I'm tempted to visit from the UK!

Maybe about 4/5hr drive? But if you ever come to the US do contact me. I would be totally game. Also am trying to figure out my next dates to come to France (lived there for 20years, I go back about once a year for a week or two, maybe a lil trip to the UK is possible there ?)

Nice! All that smoke damage adds a cool feel to the place

Pretty busted from the fire as you say, but I have a feeling that was a really cool place to have a wander. I really like that last shot too, something really odd about it.

It was really cool. I did GoPro the visit but haven't uploaded it yet. Unfortunately I changed batteries at one point and managed to rookie not press record properly so didn't record the last part and our exit. Will post a link here when it's uploaded
