    It's sad when you see a building that had so much historical significance being torn apart.

    Thus, this visit was more of a gloomy goodbye than a curious investigation. The huge blue wind pipes that made the National Gas Turbine Establishment so recognizable lay strewn and broken everywhere in pieces. Walled buildings had been shaken into a bricky mess. Collected metal pieces lay in twisted piles. Huge demolition machines stood paused to continue on their destructive path when the new week began.

    There were more layers of fencing to navigate than before. Since this is now a demolition site as well as a abandoned one its a double whammy of danger apparently. There's also less cover, since there's less NGTE left to hide behind - which is a bugger because security has become seriously heavy.

    So, I went straight for the mother machine, which has not yet been touched. The air house is where wind speeds of up to 2000mph were generated to test the concord jet turbine, among many others. Apparently the sound of this this huge machine was deafening when running, but there it sat, with only the distant clangs of disrepair to break the silence. It was a privileged to see it one last time.

    One the way out, I got caught by a security guard with a German Sheppard.

    Apparently the NGTE is being knocked down to build a warehouse.
