One leg of the mammoth ProHobo tour with Oldskool and Host, laughs all the way from start to finish.
The climb in is sketchy to say the least, especially with not having a head for heights but the climb out was even worse
There are only so many shots you can get here but it’s worth the effort just to be stood inside
Steam comes in and condenses to form hot water which is the pumped to the top of the tower and sprayed out. It falls down the middle and along the walls and into the hole. While the water moves downwards it heats up the air in the tower, which then rises, drawing in more cool air at the bottom to replace it. At the bottom the water is cool enough to go back to the power plant. Sometimes the water becomes super saturated and so it looks like fog/smoke rising out of the top.
This is the second cooling tower I have been inside and you never get over the enormity of these buildings until it is witnessed in the flesh.
Cheers for looking
