If only there were some dark satanic mills round here!

But I'll keep my eyes peeled, there might, just about, be somewhere interesting that is not fenced off or boarded in.

Exactly the sort of place I'd like to take my camera to! Closed, derelict satanic mills! Industry that was.

Alas most of Europe is in the process of de-industrialisation. I often ask myself is it no coincidence that the wealthiest country in the EU, Germany, is also the most industrialised? They make stuff, the rest of us just shift money and things around taking a margin at every turn.

I'm guessing Oldboy that where you once had factories you now have shopping malls or suburban housing estates; that seems to be the way of it.

All gone. Replaced by shops and houses.  :'(

The Black country got it's name from the smoke of all the heavy industries like steel making. In the late sixties after they built the new motorway island, I remember going up there on dark winter mornings and seeing all the red glows from the blast furnaces, as far as the eye could see.  8)

Howard, I raise my hat to you. Your theme has inspired me to go out and try something different. No one else might like the images I have taken, but I absolutely love them. I have a whole weekend alone (hubby away) so I will be out even more. I'm discovering things of beauty I never noticed before, on my own doorstop. Industry can be beautiful. I'm hooked.

I have not been this excited over a theme for a long, long time. Whoop whoop.

Decided I must get out and about more with the camera and perhaps this may fit the "Industry" bill, spotted the shot yesterday at an antiques fair. Not industrious enough methinks. :-\

Nice shot Alan. I think I will have difficulty finding "industrial" around my neck of the woods  :-\

Andy the theme is 'Industry' not 'industrial', and that would include anyone/anything industrious. There must be someone hard working handy (self portrait perhaps?) We're not exactly overrun with heavy industry here in Dordogneshire either.

Trademark Abers shot Alan, loads of impact.

DD, glad you're having fun, looking forward to seeing what you come up with.

This is the (original I believe) pit wheel from Wearmouth Colliery. It is outside of the main reception of Sunderland's Football Club, The Stadium Of Light, which is built on the old colliery site......I waited for the right time after sunset, to catch the fire in the sky. I tried different angles but was limited because of an annoying lamp post in front of the wheel. You can also see the skeleton of a crane, where the shipyards used to be.

It's a stark reminder of the industries that were the lifeblood of Sunderland, mining and ship building, now replaced with car building and call centres. I love how the steeple of the church in the distance is silhouetted between the spokes of the wheel. Hope you like it. It's my 1st attempt but not necessarily my final entry.
