    Default NGTE Pyestock - March 2011


    Well what can i say, this was probably the most epic day of exploring that i have had yet! and i hadnt written a report in a while so what better to do it on?



    I knew from previous reports that this place was big - its not... its BIG + some more! i was completely gobsmacked at it, the biggest site id explored to date was Severalls and without looking at actual figures id have to guess that this was miles bigger, however what was nice was the fact that it wasnt massive in the way that it was disorientating like Sevs could be - every building was different. It is an actual haven for explorers

    I wish i had got to this sooner really, its been pretty raped. the usual suspects like copper had been badly pillaged and the control rooms that Frink said were OK on his last visit had been trashed which was a real shame

    This was also the closest i had got to being hounded by security, they are very active in their landie and we were practically inches away from security at the start of the explore, it was quite wierd how they seemed to stop very close to our location every time they did a round.

    Visited with Professor Frink& Frink jnr - thanks for the tour guys :thumb

    I could easily have spent a lot longer in there, and certainly have unfinished business. Trying to filter through what photos to put on here has been challenging!

    I have tried to stay away from the typical "touristy" shots, but please bare with me - some had to be done! the one bastard about this place is the lack of light in a lot of places

    The 2 decent pictures i got of the first cell we visited, inside was just too dark to get a good shot





    After a good old mooch around here, we moved onto the air house - pictures do not do the size of this place any justice!



    The nice, and not so nice :banghead



    In ur dialz



    Aaaand the generic one, unfortunately my allergy to heights restriced me to below the gantry, still a nice shot though!




    In ur cell 4







    And some misc ones







    This is what i liked, a lot - the air filteration system. all the rooms to the right have a room full of massive air filters that make your car look like a grain of sand, there were just as many behind...!


    On your switches





    A couple of exteriors






    And finally,



    Thanks for looking!

    Nice one DN. I am glad your visit went to plan, and that you managed to see this site before it ends up like so many others.

    The picture 4 up from the bottom appears to show a large fox on the access road?

    Well spotted!

    We were using that sneaky little fella to see if the security were hiding round the corner!
