    Visited with Landie Man and a non-member. Thanks to Storm for some infos. Sadly, it doesn't seem like we saw everything we could have done, thanks to a combination of losing the light, and we thought we saw secca mooching about in the woods. A lot of the area is still live, with the old track and crash testing area partly disused it seems. It also seems like a lot has been ripped down and cars gone since the last report.

    History
    TRL Limited, trading as the Transport Research Laboratory, is a fully independent private company offering a transport consultancy and research service to the public and private sector. Originally established in 1933 by the UK Government as the Road Research Laboratory (RRL), it was privatised in 1996.
    During the Second World War the Laboratory contributed to the war effort. Among its contributions, under William Glanville, were research that aided the development of plastic armour, the bouncing bomb and the Disney bomb.
    In the 1970s, the TRRL moved from the Department of Trade and Industry to the Department of the Environment
    At the TRRL, Frank Blackamore developed the mini-roundabout which was adopted in 1975.
    It became an executive agency of the UK Department for Transport in 1992 and changed its name to Transport Research Laboratory (TRL). It was privatised in 1996, though plans were criticized at the time

    I live nearby and I was thinking of exploring sometime. I've planned how to enter. Would you say its high risk?
