Like the skeletal ribcage of a long-dead creature, the remains of one of the gigantic settler tanks at the Steetley Magnesia Works in Hartlepool stand testament to what was once one of the most important chemical facilities in the North East and a vital component of Britain's war effort. Since its closure in 2005, the site has undergone partial demolition which only served as a magnet for vandals, arsonists and other nere-do-wells.

Although condemned by locals as an eyesore and deathtrap (which it certainly was), it nonetheless was a fascinating photographic subject for the urban explorer. Sadly, this bleak landscape is now being completely demolished with work on razing the entire site scheduled to continue until January 2013.
