    Just wondered if anyone knows if this is still used for the electricity board or not? If not, has anyone been in?
    It's in Hawkhurst, Kent

    Having done a search for 'hawkhurst' I'd say nobody has reported that place from here

    So either its still in use or nobody has stumbled across it yet

    Give it a go :thumb let us know how you get on

    Looks live to me, probably full of transformers. You probably won't die but you will set off an alarm. If you're really lucky, you might even get sprayed with SMARTwater.

    Good luck with that.

    A quick bit of googling suggests that this could be disused. A planning application from 2010 mentions a problem with frequent powercuts caused by the substation being unable to cope with peak demand. it'll have either been upgraded or replaced.

    I'd do what paul suggests and see if you can hear it humming or see lights through the window. If you can, then refer to what fishbrain is saying.. :p:

    Tbh I'm not suicidal, I won't be going in if there's serious signs of it still being in use :)

    I work opposite it, all day every day and never seen anyone go in or out, which is why I wondered! It's got broken windows and the doors cracked but the keep out sign has so far kept me out!
