For a few days only, there will be an exhibition of photos showing some of the more spectacular examples of abandoned engineering from around the world.

Once at the cutting edge of engineering, design and construction, now they are echoes from history. Crumbling, on the brink of destruction, they are historical and evocative. The exhibition is a tie in with the documentary television series, Abandoned Engineering on Yesterday.
The television series explores how and why they were built, considers the financial and social costs of their failure and examines the environmental and ecological impacts. The series also explores how experts came up with plans to make something beautiful or useful from the ruins.
The ianVisits website has been running now for just over a decade, initially as a news blog, later adding the events listings guide to the offbeat and geeky events in London.
Advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.
It’s very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.
Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of the ianVisits website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.
If you like what IanVisits provides, then please support the website here.
