    History shamelessly stolen from Xan :thumb

    What a mission. We had some pretty good intel, but seeing those pallisade fences for real was a bit intimidating. They are tall. Still, after a quick walk around we picked a spot and over we went. Then up, in, up some more, and we were looking at the railway which fed to and from the main headstock.

    After a good look across the site to see what the days explore might unveil we headed around the corner to see the main target...

    A quick look out the window and we spotted our next destination.

    After scooting around under the main headstock, and spotting someone in high-vis taking a walk below us, we decided that climbing the headstock would be best left until last since it was the most likely activity to get us caught!

    So we took a tour of the site. Every door and window we found was secured tight with large new metal sheets. Shit. It all looked so promising through the windows we could see through as well. Bugger. Should have found out about UE a year ago. Even the other stocks weren't doable without a lot of risky climbing - right along the secca's tour path. Crap.

    So back up we climbed, unfinished business above.

    It was bloody windy up top, but the views were spectacular and as my first headstock it didn't disappoint. Still, more to see next time.

    Climbing down we found that actually the pallisades were a fuck of a lot trickier to get out over than get in over. When it comes to potentially impaling my testicles, I try to take as few risks as possible - I quite like them where they are.

    A return trip might be on the cards, if the buildings open up again. I'll keep an eye on things. Thanks for reading :cool:
