    yeah it's spooky especially Pripyat which was built to house the workers.

    There are some poignant pictures on the BBC news site
    BBC Chernobyl Pictures
    'There is a fair ground which is one of the more contaminated parts of the town. It had been due to open on 1 May 1986, five days after the disaster, and was never used.'

    Have a look at the big wheel...

    What's really spooky is all the abbandoned vehicles everywhere. There's a lot of trucks and cars in the town area north. And to the south east there are a lot of abbandoned ships on the river.

    Just south of the plant itself, there's what looks like an old radar station? Any ideas as to what it really is?

    Certainly looks like a radar station, a very old one at that.
    Has big pylons at each end and the big row of pylons in the middle seem to be connected to each other.

    It's hard to ID anything there very well as it's so overgrown and much of it is totaly run-down.

    Beat me to it!

    The fairground is really spooky though, you can still see the ferris wheel.

    And there's lots of littel villages to the west of the main plant that are all overgrown.

    Has anyone found the trenches where all the vehicles used for the evac and clean up were burried? There's supposed to be several not filled in so they should show up.
