    well that's one step closer to a workman leaving a door open.

    I took a look at Shepton Mallet a few days ago and it's a complete no-goer at the moment.

    We keep checking Bullwood hall as it closed last year, but it's not looking so good at the moment. Regular patrols, untouched etc. Shame. Who would've thought getting into a prison would be hard? :rolleyes:

    Has anyone actually done an explore like this before? I mean these prisons are in good condition and the current owners, whoever they are, seem to want to keep them that way. Good condition means razor wire, bars and high walls...

    The main issue we are going to face is these buildings don't have keys its a someone has to be in to let you in. I know that Shepton has between 2 and 3 guards on at anyone time so I'm guessing other sites will too. Shepton has tallest walls in country so that's a bit crap but I can see a couple ways in if once contracts are swapped new owners want to get rid of security n board up. Getting in is easy part getting out not so sure lol

    They have been done but it does require them to be somewhat neglected. Its the transitional periods where they essentially become construction sites that will probably yield the most results..

    Checked it out the other week. Impossible at the moment.

    I couldn't see anyway of getting in, security or not. It's going be a tough phone, if it happens at all.

    The most important thing is to keep on checking. One day something will change.
