LOST HYDROPOWER [IT]
Exploration #168. This small hydroelectric power station is hidden in a woods on the banks of a river. Not even satellite images can make out its presence any more, as it is overgrown with vegetation. The building is very old, built as it used to be with blocks of stone, and still contains the remains of the generator connected by a belt drive to a Francis-type turbine located on the floor below. Unfortunately I have not been able to find any information about its history, but it was probably used to supply power to one of the many cotton mills in the area, which no longer exists. Although the small power station is now in ruins, it was a pleasant exploration, very bucolic, especially for an industrial archaeology lover like me.
