    Default Houghton Grange, Cambridgeshire. March 2015


    Second Explore of the day with Wombat and King Mongoose. This was one I was really excited about but all I can say is that I now know how it feels to be a big brother contestant.

    There is very little history to be found on this place apart from it is an ex government animal testing centre. Its set in 100 acres and its a huge site.

    The Gem is the main hall but we failed on that one as time was getting on. Although we did set off all the PIR's on our way out and waited from a distance to see if a guy came screaming around the corner in a little Vauxhall Corsa van. Alas he never came so maybe we will have to go back and gets some more pics.
