What is that grim back smear to your north-east?  It looks more like a forest fire than anything.

That's Mordor... (see WIP unit pics!)  Wink

I'm guessing it's the smoke from the industrial works out the back.

Talk about your dark satanic mills.  I hope the wind don't shift.

30-40 years ago you wouldn't have been able to see half of Middlesbrough on that satellite photo!  We used to be one of the key steel producing areas of the world, Teesside Steel was used to build the Sydney Harbour Bridge!   Cool

Unfortunately, a lot of the industry disappeared over the years, although they have just reopened the steelworks again this year, bringing a lot of much-needed jobs back into the region.

The area was decimated in the eighties, some areas of Middlesbrough when I left school had over 90% male unemployment. The year I left school was the first year the areas main employers British Steel and ICI did not take on apprentices. Bleak was not the word. In the end most of the lads I grew up with moved out of the area for work, I'm still in London.

I left school in 1983, I was the only kid in my class to get a job after applying for over 150 jobs with enclosing a Stamped Addressed Envelope just to try and get a reply haha.  Even the ICI apprentices were eventually paid off..some coming to our little company.

I worked for an electrical contracting company working in heavy industry... so all those chemicals and British Steel metal dust and other crap in my lungs will probably catch up with me  Angry

Still love coming back and seeing how things have changed.
