    Default NGTE Pyestock June 2010


    Visited with Mookie back in the summer, my first visit to Pyestock after a previous fail. We covered the majority of the site as he explained in his post. Finally got round to sorting through my photos so thought i'd do a report

    As it was his first trip we took in the two big draws first, the Air House and Cell 4 before heading to the (pretty crap) Computer Building. At this stage it was a magical mystery tour as we had both not done any of these bits before, we just asked each other where we would like to head and tried to find something good! After a whizz through the computer building we utilised the Monk's Tunnel which brought us out into Cell 3, which gave me the feeling of absolute awe again, the pipework in that thing is absolutely bloody enormous! We had had a trouble free explore so far despite being nervy at many of the weird noises occuring seemingly in and around the Cell 3 building, and whilst we were both stood on the top level walkway in the building we heard security in their Land Rover rumble past...After a bit of waiting we stumbled across the (still operational?) water pumping room, tried for the fire station to see the plane but found it locked tight and ended the day at Cell 3 West. Brilliant
    On with the photos.. I found this a very difficult site to photograph as i was still very unsure of my SLR which i had only used a handful of times when we explored the site so alot of photos i was very unhappy with, still a reason to return. Thought i'd give you some of the common sights aswell as a few that don't seem to get covered on here

    The lightbulbs are pretty big! and there are so many of them!

    to be honest, if it was me there i'd have more fun walking on the blue pipes than going into the actual building! haha

    We were lucky to see the innards of Cell 3 as a week or so later it was sealed!
