    I know this isn't happening till next year but the loughborough site is due to close. No doubt it will be a difficult nut to crack though considering it's high fences and comprehensive CCTV coverage.

    No-Way! How bizzare I was looking at the place from the train the other day, and thought:
    'One day somewhere like that will be derelict, and the next generation will consider it a relic of the past'

    Turns out it's happening sooner than I thought ;)

    I need to find out who is dealing with site planning for its closure, any chance you could have a word with your pal as to who will be dealing with the decommissioning? I live near and am interested in future use or even buying site.

    I realise this is a slightly older post, but some may be interested in it still. Most people leave between July and Sept. this year, with the plan for the site to be closed by the end of this year.

    The plan was that the site would be sold to another organisation, but from what ive heard thats now fallen through so should now be decomissioned. if anyone wants more info let me know.

    I can now confirm that the site has shut down and staff have left,no doubt there is still active security as they are stilltrying to find a buyer to take on the facility as is.

    This place is like a fortress and looks to still be partially live! I would say a couple of years or so :cool:
