    Visited with Keïteï, OliverGT, 2wid and Gh0sT - and a huage thanks to the first two for acting as tour guides :cool:

    Since I first started all this UE malarkey just over a year ago, this has been my Holy Grail site. Some of you will laugh at that, but it's true. So much so that I got into bed afterwards around 7:30am and had to get up again at 10:30am having not slept a second - I was still buzzing that much.

    History courtesy of battersea-powerstation.com via the brain of fish.
    Following on from some early evening warm-up derps, we made our way to the waterfront for some rather more epic shenanigans.

    After a bit of squeezing and climbing, struggling in the dark and then blinded by the floodlights, a bit more squeezing, some running, climbing, more climbing, sketchy sketchy ladders and a pigeon, we finally found ourselves in the most impressive, most pristine control room I've ever seen.


    It's almost impossible to photograph though! With the room lit from windows looking out into the Turbine hall, which secca routinely tour, we couldn't risk light painting.


    The walls were solid marble panels and under the floor covering was the original wooden herringbone floor. The details were stunning and I really need to try this again in daylight. Not to mention the B side which we didn't manage this time around!


    Once we decided enough was enough was enough - taking pity on 2wid who had been pacing the room waiting for us for at least half an hour - we aimed for the roof.

    Climbing ladders, pigeon shit, returning for ladders, more pigeon shit, roof!

    Well it was probably worth it in the end. Probably.


    Getting out we took a collective sigh of relief at getting through undetected and made our own way home.

    What a night.​
