    Ok, so I loved it so much the first time, I just had to go back for more. I had unfinished business with her. I couldn't find my way into a couple of places to get the pictures I wanted on the first attempt and the place is so huge it'll take many more visits to visit all her buildings and understand her workings more.

    This was a solo visit, at least it started that way, I ended up bumping into 3 different groups of explorers so hi to those guys I met. I had a plan this time, I roughly knew the layout, I'd done more research to see which buildings were of most interest to me next and I wanted to get up higher. I also knew the movements of security (or so I thought).

    I got there early this time, I wanted maximum time to look around, it was a freezing cold morning and the sun was rising as I made my entrance.

    The perimeter fencing is littered with signage attempting to deter any curious opportunists.

    As soon as I got in, I wanted to get up high, to relax for a minute, take in the sights and get a better view of the whole site. I climbed the outer staircase of the Bramshot Cooling Towers. This building was used for cooling the exhaust gases of test cells 3 and 4. It comprises of 30 huge fans on the roof and a myriad of pipes and tubes inside.

    And a view across towards cells 3 and 4 and cell 3 west in the distance

    While we're on the subject of cell 3 west, here's a couple of pictures of the inside and external shot

    I then made my way over to the Number 10 Exhauster building. I wanted to see the huge Parsons turbine in here and also the control room

    I then headed across to the Plant House, there was another control room I wanted to see in here. There were a lot of drawings that had been taken out of the filing cabinets and left scattered across the floor, I also found a fantastic hand drawn schematic of the whole site!!

    After about 3 very close escapes from security, I decided to get myself back inside so I went back to cells 3 and 4 to get some photo's that I missed the time before

    And finally in cell 3 where I couldn't get into before so thanks to Chris for the intel
