near to Swansea/Abertawe, Great Britain

Remains of Yorkshire Imperial Metals Hafod Works, Landore
Remains of Yorkshire Imperial Metals Hafod Works, Landore
This is part of a once enormous copper works that closed in about 1980 and has been deteriorating since. This building shows the remains of a clock tower and the effects of slate thieves and arsonists. I believe this was the works' canteen. There are also the nearby remains of engine houses and a uniflow steam engine that drove a rolling mill. There is a park and ride car park in the foreground. Not that long ago this whole area was wasteland.
