Magna: The Underhive in South Yorkshire?

I was wandering around the Magna Science and Adventure Centre during the school holidays, just one of the many things that we'd scheduled to keep our feral children entertained until the blissful arrival of the new academic year, when I was inspired to take out the digital camera and snap off some shots after thinking how much the interior of the massive place reminded me of what I reckon sections of the Necromundan Underhive might well look like.

Magna was once the mighty Steelos plant on the border of Sheffield and Rotherham (and so large that one end was named after the city and the other the town) and home to a truly terrifying arc furnace that comes back to life throughout the day thanks to fireworks and a light show, the place is well worth the time to visit even if you're not looking for inspiration for Necromunda or a Mechanicum forge.

There's not much more to say, apart from that I hope you find the following pictures of interest, and a link to Magna's website can be found here.
