    Following my exploits on Debenhams in Exeter recently, I decided i'd got a taste for the high stuff, and wanted to do some more.

    The South West is sadly lacking in anything half decent, but a bit of searching on google maps, and then finding an archived report from 2007, by Rigsby, (http://www.28dayslater.co.uk/forums/showthread.php?t=24724)
    revealed a rather nice site which used to be used for testing Electicity pylons.

    The site has been pretty much stripped since 2007, with part of the quarry area having been sublet.
    The only bits remaining being the tower, (ladder cut at 1st floor level), and the HUGE scotch Derrick crane which is built into the rock face.
    Having found our way to the top, a climb out to the end of the crane just had to be done!
    Thanks to Urbanity & Dangerous Dave for the company.


    An overview of the site, showing the Derrick Crane, testing tower, and a column now used for cctv!



    A very long way down!



    the boobytrapped landing, note half of the walkway missing, not to be done at night!!


    The stunning view from the end.


    Something different to do on a sunny, Sunday afternoon!​
