Default Decaying industrial plant etc

Not exactly radio but certainly old tech. Unbelievable images of abandoned industrial power plants etc. It's a shock to see that these places exist and perhaps illustrates where we are at at the present time. Not to mention numerous listed buildings in the other categories.

On the same theme, but definitely radio: an abandonded SW broadcast or jamming station in Kazakstan

The Brent Delta platform shown on the website - I drove past the Able UK yard where it is being dismantled today. They have finished! All that it left is a pile of tortured steel.

I really like these "sub-brit urbex" style sites, hard to believe how quickly decay sets in even after only ten years or so. I hope someone saved the Sailor ships radios from Brent Delta, been looking for one of those.

It is all very depressing seeing these places,I used to go around photographing machinery for the company I worked for used to buy.

Very eerie when there is nothing running and of course I thought where are those folks who used to work in them.
