    I visited this site back in June, which must have around the same time as tegwin's visit - what are the chances! :p

    I'd been to the site about a year before (my first explore!) but didn't have my camera, so that was the purpose of this visit, some documentation for 28DL. The site has been of interest to me for years. The old masts were clearly visable on the drive to Oswestry and I always wondered what was at the base. I only visited originally when I stumbled upon the link on sub-brit.

    Even though Tegwin's post has already covered it, I'd post some of my pictures up

    I didn't have a chance to go ino other buildings down the road, which is a shame.

    Some other links on the site

    This is the entrace to the medium wave (HF) transmitter building

    Closer up

    Old sign hidden in the undergrowth on the gate

    [​IMG]

    Not too sure what this is for, I think it's something to do with the anti-cut fence system

    [​IMG]

    The building itself

    [​IMG]

    With the serious fence around the site

    [​IMG]

    Lots of these all over the place - lots of volts!

    [​IMG]

    This is one of the bases for the old masts, plenty of them about

    [​IMG]

    The interior of the medium wave building, like the others, is trashed

    [​IMG]

    You can see the main building across the road

    [​IMG]

    The main building itself. That massive fence on the left houses the old car park!

    [​IMG]

    This is the old video phone entry system. This was in much better condition last year, shame I didn't have my camera at the time :(

    Sorry looking chair in a pile of broken glass

    [​IMG]

    This lonley filing cabinet was outside an old outbuilding now used as a cow shed - it smelt baaaaad

    [​IMG]

    Massive loading door around the back

    [​IMG]

    My favourite kind of radiation!

    [​IMG]

    The hall on the main entrance

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I THINK this is the old main VLF hall

    [​IMG]

    Through a seperate door is what seemed like the admin area, which went through to the big coil room / hall

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]



    Yet more trashed rooms :rolleyes:

    [​IMG]

    The massive sized coil room - my flash wasn't good enough :p

    You can see where all the cables would have come through in the top right
