Back in mid-2014, the Hoth System was forced to shut down, making its 100-or-so Adelaide-based workers redundant. It operated for nearly 80 years before ending operations.

It has sat deserted ever since.

At the current time, the Hoth System is in the midst of asbestos removal and demolition. 24-hour security and the on-site dog are protecting the site while this process occurs.

These images, taken soon after the plant was shut down, are here to serve as a historical record of what the plant was like 12-24 months ago.
