Explore #7 of the ‘Greased Otters Tour’
Please excuse the cringeworthy Urbex codename, not of my doing…
This control room is all that now remains of a former gas and oil-fired power plant, built in the early 2000s to power a paper mill next door. The mill once boasted a production output of 330,00 tonnes of paper per annum, employing almost 350 staff. Production declined during the 2010s, and after failing to sell the site it was closed down and stripped out, with only the rather gorgeous retro red control room still remaining.
We were reaching that stage where we were in danger of missing our eurotunnel crossing, so this was a very speedy 45 minute in-and-out affair, but a great way to round off another highly enjoyable and successful euro weekender – cheers lads!
Thanks for dancing with me (cheek to cheek).
