The Visit

Went with some other exploring friends. Massive site and loved it. Saw most of the accessable buildings. Although a lot of rooms have been stripped there is still an awful lot to see. The labs are my personal favourite. Although our visit was cut short by the arrival of two or three people at the other end of the corridor we was in dressed in a full army uniform carrying guns. We also found bullets on the floor. They clearly saw us as we was not hiding but did not approach us and didn't call out to us.

This looks like an excellent place that is popping up a lot at the mo. Another one I need to put on the list.
Nice report
