Delving much deeper into the Capital Steel Complex than ever before, Misha Mushu and I were determined to get right to the heart of the complex and find some of the huge machines.
Misha commented about the scale of the place, which seems to get larger and more spread out every time I visit.
It was too windy on this visit to get to the top of the towers which were creaking in the strong breeze.
Nothing is ever going to stop me climbing up the conveyor cranes. They give excellent views of the site.
We couldn’t figure out how to get into the diagonal corridors that lead up onto the upper structures, but maybe we’ll figure that out next time.
These two towers dominate the skyline, and seem to mark the middle of the complex. I still haven’t figured out how to reach them yet.
This building is a steam-punk dinosaur, its long neck reaching into the sky.
Misha stands like a ray of light in this dark and grimy complex.
You can find these bottles all over the site. It is a fizzy orange drink that perhaps was produced on site. The bottles are everywhere.
And if one green bottle was to accidentally fall…
