    History

    I originally came here in February 2013 with The Wombat, but never got round to posting a thread. So on our way to meet Stig and AK in Kimberley, we decided to have a few sneaky explores. After nearly ending up Melton Mowbray due to Miss Mayhem’s inability to follow instructions and 2 fails, we finally arrived in Willington. It was a nice easy stroll, but the shear size of these things still have me in awe.

    Wow those things are immense. Your shots really show the scale of the place (esp as I've never yet been in anything like them) - loved pics 3 and 4 :thumb

    I really need to get to see these soon.. if only to conquer my fear as for some reason things like this scare the hell out of me.. like the sight of a huge ship in a dry dock.. scary !!
