    ...basically a post war operations centre, and a three-storey rotor bunker.

    Very black, very dirty, extremely dangerous in parts, and it's riddled with asbestos.

    The old plotting room, now flooded...

    and from the other side...

    Steps to a serving hatch...

    The main corridor...

    and some nice painted signage...

    and on we went to the rotor bunker down this slope shaft...

    I didn't really think there was much to see down here. Yes some stuff survives, but it's a mess...

    The plant level was quite intact though...

    Main ventilation fans...

    The old secure doors were still there, as was the plant room...

    Air ducts running up the stairwell...

    We were covered in soot by the time we got out. The rather pretty girl at the Travel Lodge wondered what the hell we had been rooting about in. The clothes and camera bag kept covering everything they touched in soot until they got washed today.
