The massive size of this structure is enough to creep us out, but its water-cooling station is also starting to be overtaken by nature which is adding a creepy natural element.
This power station was once a fundamental structure for the city, and now it sits unused.
St. Joseph Frozen Lighthouse on Lake Michigan
This doesn’t look as though it can be real but instead was imagined by an illustrator at Disney. Amazingly, this incredible ice sculpture sits on the banks of Lake Michigan, looking more like an ice castle than a frozen lighthouse.
The St. Joseph Lighthouse became completely covered in ice when temperatures dropped to an incredible -34C in December 2016. Weather warnings at the time stated that just 10 minutes outside in these conditions would cause frostbite. This looks like a bad case of frostbite for this lighthouse!
Oodnadatta Track in South Australia
The Oodnadatta Track is a 383-mile-long road that goes between Marree and Marla and passes via Oodnadatta. The track follows a traditional Aboriginal trading route and in 1980 was named the Oodnadatta Track by Adam Plate. The road itself is still well maintained and can be driven along, but along the way, you will see the ruins of old railway buildings, bridges, and sidings.
There is a well-maintained camping site called Coward Springs Campground with a natural spa for the more outdoorsy types to enjoy. The spa benefits from the fact that numerous springs exist along the route and feed into the Great Artesian Basin.
Abandoned Domino Sugar Factory — Brooklyn, New York
The Domino Sugar factory was functioning up until 2004 when it closed down. The end came for the 150-year-old factory after 250 members of staff went on an extended strike. The company eventually decided to cease all operations and closed the factory.
It was such an iconic part of the Brooklyn skyline that the factory and a few of the other buildings in the same complex were awarded landmark status in 2007.
Red Sands Sea Forts – Sealand, United Kingdom
The micronation of Sealand, which is located off the coast of Suffolk, England has claimed ownership of these derelict structures. They were originally installed during the Second World War to help protect the River Thames and the route to London.
The forts were never dismantled after the War and were never maintained, giving them a rusted and creepy appearance.
