    Visited over numerous visits and either went with or bumped into the following: JasperB, Gabe, Seffy, SirJonnyP, WhoDaresWins, Tumbles, END-Proc, housecat, elliot5200, voibmi, TheFamousThreeGoTo, Skeleton Key, Starlight, One Flew East, Zombizza, Keitie, 2wid and quite a few other people whos names have slipped my mind (sorry).​


    I'm sure everyone is bored with all the reports coming out of this place by now, but here's another one anyway. Particularly out of the above myself, Jasp, Gabe and Seffy have been spending ridiculous amounts of time at BPS over the last couple of months trying to see everything that we possible can. We've seen a hell of a lot but there's still some bits we haven't properly seen so no doubt we will end up back there again at some point to take those in too. It's truly an amazing place, one of the places that I think everyone has wanted to go to at some point. I know that it's pretty much been on my list from day 1 and I'm so glad that I've had the opportunity to see it.

    It's been quite strange seeing how quickly things have changed in the time that we have been visiting, in particular how things have gradually gotten easier and easier (obviously down to the traffic it's getting). We've also had many of those classic moments after spending ages climbing up things only to realise that there was a staircase next door, all part of the fun though!

    Obviously we visited the control rooms like most people do, but to be honest I actually enjoyed just wandering around the offices and other parts of the building constantly finding treasure troves of old plans, plans for the John Broome led "theme park" and at the very end tonnes of slides of the 1980's demolition and stripping out. It's really been somewhere that's consistently kept giving and giving each time we visited. I've had a blast doing this with some awesome people, it's been a real pleasure exploring with them.

    Our first visit we were very tentative and pretty much expecting it to be a failure, we spent about 6 hours there and didn't really see much but as the visits continued we got to know the place better and managed to get more done each time and felt pretty much at home in the end, on our last trip we shared the site with up to 16,000 people who were taking part in a marathon for charity.

    Anyway enough rambling and on with the report.

    A special thanks should go to all those people who've gone before us and passed on information which has been a huge help. Also to Seffy for letting us all squeeze in his car on numerous occasions.
