It’s not a flipping attraction. It’s a rusting ship. Only the arty will revel in its decay. The rest of go ‘ugh what a mess’.

If you enjoy unusual sites, this is one not to miss! It is so easy to access and walk to, and you can take such amazing photographs when walking by the refineries. So glad I found this up on Google. Very cool.
