    Hi folks, just want to tell you all last Saturday I went for a look up a TG Greens in Swadlincote. I wasn't planning on doing any exploring, I was there just to scope it out for a future explore. As soon as I got out of my car and walked up the lane, a guy in a busted up 4x4 came tearing by looking at me. I didn't get a good feeling about it so I went up a tree and hid for a while. The guy went past me a few times driving quite slow and he was looking around as if he was looking for me.
    As soon as the coast was clear I was gone. Later on that evening I was speaking to a friend and said he went up there and the same guy spoke to him and said if he catches him any where in the grounds he will smash his camera up.
    Has anyone else had any dealing with this guy?

    No reason why you should have to hide for just walking up the lane, not as if that part is private property or anything.

    I know but, to be honest it was quite amusing watching him go by trying to work out where I have gone

    It"s a public road FFS & as for hide up a tree :confused:
    Sounds more like a Rapist than the new owner of Greens :eek:

    Should take pics of him & his vehicle & inform the Police if you feel threatened in anyway whatsoever, both on the Public Road or inside. Although as i understand it lots of it are now sealed or secured....finally.

    My mates got busted by the new owner recently & were politely asked to leave , they didn"t mention any threats?

    I've heard stories like this from here before. Guy sounds like a bellend. To smash my camera, he'd have to get it off me.
    No need to hide in a tree, if anything, it'd make you look more suspicious.

    not to be funny or harsh in response, but a lot of work goes into research into sites before we visit - we rarely ask for help from others and its only if its a tricky one, this isn't a tricky one what so ever and if you time your visit well you will avoid any activity on the site.

    That said, I will send you a couple of pointers, from there on you will have to do the rest - but we researched the site on google without any issues, when we got there we had to be clever at getting in without being seen - with the info you have already you are better placed than we were.
