The abandoned movie set of Cameron's 'The Abyss'

One of the locations used for the filming of the 1989 science fiction film 'The Abyss' was Cherokee Nuclear Power Plant, an uncompleted nuclear power plant on Owensby Road, near Gaffney, South Carolina. There, director James Cameron constructed the largest underwater filming set ever built. It took 7 million US gallons (26,000 m3) of water to fill the tank to a depth of 40 feet (12 m). 

After filming, the set was left abandoned, as the cost of deconstruction was considered too high. It became a destination for urban explorers until it was finally demolished in 2007.
