A WOMAN was taken to Bathurst Base Hospital on Wednesday after injuring herself at the old Bathurst Gasworks site.
Emergency services were called to help the 43-year-old at about 5.40pm.
“She had a possible dislocated ankle and was in a stable condition,” the NSW Ambulance media unit said.
Paramedics faced a difficult task when they arrived due to a locked gate and high fence, and they needed assistance to gain access.
The Bathurst Gasworks site has been the responsibility of Jemena since 2008.
People accessing the dangerous site has been a constant problem, which was why Jemena installed a security fence in early 2017.

A spokesperson for Jemena said Wednesday's incident served as yet another reminder not to trespass.
“This is a timely reminder to the local community that the site is private property and should not be entered illegally,” they said.
“Because it is currently not being used, it has been fenced and locked to protect the public from potential hazards.
“Entering the area without permission and supervision is a risk, therefore, we reiterate that warning signs should be obeyed at all times.”
