    Default Marconi Radio - December 2009


    I was going through some of my old explores today wondering what i could post up here that would be any different to what had already been covered

    I nearly didn't post this, simply because the site isnt massive and the photos that everyone (and me) take tend to be a bit "samey" . Not jus that but this site has been covered here quite well, so i wont be including History.
    There was however something that i could see missing from the photos i saw here - something that actually makes this place look a bit special... snow!
    It gives a totally different perspective.... and its damned cold!!!

    Looking at previous reports this place has deteriorated pretty badly since , those gorgeous stairs have been attacked and so have a number of other rooms. its an absolute disgrace. Thankfully the BBC intervention managed to halt the terrorism somewhat

    The photos didn't come out as well as id have hoped. my camera was an absolute demon for running through 2 sets of batteries in 40 photos but hey. ive included some of my other favourites too

    Enjoy

    ~DN~

    Do like the old Stairwell shots...




    Grand staircase that has been shamelessly pikeyed to buggery




    Once grand main reception, again even the handles have been taken




    One of my favourite photos of the day, and a few of the snow














    Very good example of the level of stripping going on




    Felt sure we were in chelmsford...



    Myself doing a Jacko impersonation



    And finally, my favourite shot out of all my visits - thanks to the trusty film camera




    Cheers for looking

    Nice work DN, I too like to explore in the snow, even if your footprints do give you away to security.

    But there again, the footprint thing works both ways
    Silence is golden but duck tape is silver.

    TBH, we really were not concerned about that - with the amount of pikey activity who had actually driven up to the place if secca's were about.... well, yea

    I love film shots for exactly the same reason that i hate them. the fact that you have to wait and see how they have come out is thrilling but at the same time very annoying
