    Well i have been watching this for a while now and finaly got round to exploring it the other night with OT.
    Access was a bit tricky with the live site next door and air field over the road.

    The East Works has been replaced by a £75m factory over the road, which was opened by Princess Anne last year.
    The move took over four months and involved transferring 750 staff and 800 bits of equipment from the East Works to the new site over the road.
    The East Works has made engines for lots of aircraft like Concorde, Harrier jump jet's and the Brabazon.
    The new Patchway site is the Defence Aerospace base for Rolls and houses assembly lines for a range of aircraft engines, including the EJ200 for the Typhoon, the Adour for the Hawk and the RTM322 for the NH90 and EH101 helicopters.
    The former factory site will be flattened in the next six months by demolition contractor Buckingham and then be offered for sale next year.
