    After checking out Carmel College in Wallingford to find it tighter than the proverbial nun's chuff (pics can be seen here if you want as it's not worth a report) me and Treadstone headed to Bristol to attempt the Elizabeth Shaw chocolate factory - but found it in the hands of people who said they were 'workmen' but numerous things pointed to that not being the case - and looked like the sort of people you wouldn't want to meet in a building after just being told in no uncertain terms to 'fuck off'.

    So we cut our losses and wondered what else could go wrong, luckily Treadstone had his map of interesting locations and we decided to head for the CRE near Cheltenham. Having just now looked at previous reports it seemed a lot of stuff was accessible a year or so ago but that is not the case now, pretty much everything is locked tight, and with it being a weekday the business park out the front was in full swing, so climbing any of the stacks wasn't an option either :(

    Some history (shamelessly copied 'n' pasted)

    So in a day of fail here is what I came away with....

    The link you posted now has a notice announcing the closure of the site

    "It is with great regret that I have to announce the closure of Stoke Orchard Airsoft with immediate effect.

    The parent company has decided to pull out of the site and cease all training within Stoke Orchard to ready themselves for a move to new premises."

    Anyone know what's happening there?

    There's been talk of the site being demolished next July.

    Presumably people are less likely to make much effort with a doomed site.
