    Default NGTE Pyestock, Hampshire - August 2009


    Visited with Ghost Walker on the first sunny day in a good month. Now, we're not the first people here, and we'll by no means be the last, this site appears to be top of the UK explorer's tourist list and I can totally see why. We didn't make it around a lot of the site, and unfortunately there were contractors working in the Airhouse ( on a sunday?!) so I return visit is definitely in order.

    Here's a couple of photos from when Matthew McConaughey and PenÚlope Cruz explored cells 3 & 4 back in 2005;

    Cell 4;


    Cell 3;


    And 4 years later, a bit has changed. There's no barrells of industrial waste around, but the lovely plastic cladding and evidence of the conveyor system still exist.





















    You would have thought the MOD would be a little more careful as to where they leave classified documents...

    I wasn't looking for any adders to be honest, was keeping an eye out for squaddies and "suspicious objects." I mean, the sign is too inviting to ignore.

    Brown folder = unclassified I'm afraid.

    If they were classified they'd be in a green folder and if they were secret a red folder.

    Just the main essentials. We were shocked you were walking around with a DSLR, without a tri-pod. :p

    Couple of mine, only of Cell 3 and Cell 4. None of the other photos looked that exciting IMO. Will dig the ones out from my first visit as well at some point.

    I'd heard that they had been moving reptiles etc. outside the plastic reptile fencing....not sure if that's correct or not. But don't move the sheets of corrugated stuff cos that's where they are gathering from?

    Nice pictures as always.

    Ahh, so that's what the corrugated sheeting was for. We assumed it was marking out an outer-patrol route.
