These two old power stations sit on the edge of a live steelworks site. There is some really impressive old industry to see here, including a massive old gas engine hall which still contains one huge engine, which was actually the biggest of its kind in the world. 
All that's left of the other smaller power station are the boilers and a couple of small control rooms, no turbines :( But it's still impressive to see some dated industry. 

Visited with @AndyK! and Kriegaffe9. 

The first building we entered was the smaller station:

After a while walking around on giant suspended pipes and through asbestos we find this compressor room:

I'm still jealous of your control panel shot! That gas engine was such an impressive piece of kit, really amazing to see in real life how big it is.

Yes mate, wicked shots. We had to scarper from here after just a few pics unfortunately as they had motion sensors near the giant gas engine

Great set. I was there seven years ago; unfortunately the big engine hall was not accessible at this time because of workers. But surprisingly there has been only little change in the control room area during all these years.

Very nice - I'm surprised to see that the big gas engine is still being dismantled. I though it has been moved out years ago.
