    i planned a trip down to dorset to see my parents last weekend.
    my plans fell apart before i even started. i was late home from work, my little lad was ill and when we eventually got down there i had realised i had left my bag full of clothes and my camera in my flat on the sofa.
    i had this explore planned as saturday was the only day i could get acses to this building as it is now quite secure. had a phone call from my dad telling me to meet him there in 10 mins so went to grab my sister digi cam onlt to find out the batery was dead.
    so all was not lost as i had my phone with me, so appologies for the pictures but it was all i had after all the hassle.

    OT and a couple of others have posted about this building and i pass it quite often and thought i must get in there.
    this could be one of the last reports from this place as it is now as the asbestos man has been in the place and labeled everything ready for the builders to go in and convert it into posh flats.
    this was the control tower for the former royal naval air station on portland and housed several offices as well as the main flight control for the base. there is a lead linded computer room in the building as well as a couple of workshop rooms.
    a squater has been living in there for a while although looks like he has been gone for a while now. and sombody has been robbing the copper cable from the place as there is 100's of yards of stripped cable plastic everwhere on the site but the very strange thing is the all the copper piping for the water and heating is still all intact and would have been an easier way of earning a few quid.
    in one of the rooms was a fantastic ariel plan of the place and when you slid the board across was a huge chalk board with lots of graffiti but didnt recognise any of the names on it lol.
    i will let the pics say the rest as i dont want to bore you all.
