    It's been posted before, but there's nothing wrong with a reminder for a site as good as this. We've had our eyes on it for a while now, some good extra bits of info in that article there, I was working under the impression it was due to close two weeks ago, according to another article. It's all about that (proportionately) huge power station though really isn't it...

    This place has come to light a few time in the leads and rumours since last summer when the news was first released up here in the north east. The update is as horus said, the power staton side id still going to remain as a working station, there already have been some lay off's with the rest of the remaining work force will be gone by May time, and there is already a demo crew waiting in the winds to get in there.
    I know the site somewhat with going there though work. A new secca building went up 2 years ago with all the CCTV stsyem updated at the same time and there are right on the ball, even came to me for speeding onsite once,,, me.....speeding? as if lol lol

    spoke to my uncle who is management staff there atm he said once the work force has gone there will still be full site security but he reakons with a proper reccy you could get in as long as you avoid the cameras and patrols (a litlle metal gear solid if you ask me) but he said it would be worth the effort and that at night theres less than half the security on the site so late on is the best time to go but as Horus said he loves a challenge lol just thought id let you know that info

    ^^ always true, but at night sec are there to do their job, keep everything off site. During the day, only gates, noddy walks and manning the gatso

    Everyone needs to have yellow turbines inside their kitchens, all the time.

    Haven't had time, and its now about a 4hour £100 drive away so yeah, feel free to show whats left of the place! Was scheduled to be an utter winner, but pretty constant 50+ workers on site removing the plant from the site has made things slow, and as I say, can't really afford dropping that much fuel on exploring stuff anymore :(
