    Arrow NGTE Pyestock - Fleet - 2008 some time and some other time


    Hello all, you've all seen Pyestock before :)

    So, fairly recently, myself, drypulse, cheese (not a member) and one of drypulse's friends went for a fairly short visit to Pyestock. We couldn't get into a lot of the buildings and mainly stayed in Cell 3. We went down Monk's Passage to the computer building but fairly quickly got spooked by security and left the site for the day.

    I had wanted to go back and get more shots before I posted and very very recently went back on my own. The only access I could find was a long way from where I wanted to get to, so once in, I stomped the breadth of the site in the woodland for cover. Just as I was about to step out of the woods and make my way to the interior fence I spotted a black-uniformed chap on a bicycle by the interior fence about 2m from me! I ducked down into the ferns and hoped he didn't see me as he cycled past. Thankfully the 80s and 90s are over and I wasn't wearing a luminous shell-suit and he didn't spot me. I did get very spooked by this though and decided to make my way back to my access point.... I had a nice dinner to get home to and didn't want to get caught and miss it :p

    The long and short of it is that I don't know when I will get another chance to get more shots, so here are the ones from earlier in 2k8.

    I don't know how long Pyestock will be there. Security is tighter and they do seem to be slowly pulling stuff down :(

    Wow, thanks Stu!

    This lark is pretty hard with a compact. When we went to Witley I had my 400D and a Sony compact, and the shots from the compact were mostly hopeless!

    As King Al said, never tire of seeing pics from explores of this place! ta for putting them up. need to go here while it's still there. it has to be one of the most photogenic places around, parts of it look a bit sci-fi film set-ish!

    :) Cell 3 and other areas were used in the 2005 film Sahara http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0318649/ (pretty bad apparently) http://video.google.co.uk/videoplay?docid=6495361314846963469 and parts of Pyestock have been in Red Dwarf too.

    Wow, looks like a really dangerous place, no wonder why security is so tight
