    Interesting stuff, we're lucky to have seen sites like this, Inverkip, Cockenzie and so on - pretty soon there won't be anything comparable.

    Scottish Power definitely know people have been exploring it … I know a couple of guys from Manchester who were surprised by a worker in the main control room at 3am one morning at the start of the year, and had to flee. They were pretty lucky to get away.

    Yes so do i it was me that helped them get in. As did a reccy the night before between my day and nights. I had a clear run then in November we had already explored most of the place since closure night in march 2016 with no issues. That's when they fixed the blockade with steel sheeting as well as scaffolding and boards.

    Think they where just unlucky to be honest and the control room was stripped not that long after wolfie. The reccy the night before was a case of all the monitors of the walls Pc from turbine controls on the each station too.
