    I visited this site back in June, which must have around the same time as tegwin's visit - what are the chances! :p

    I'd been to the site about a year before (my first explore!) but didn't have my camera, so that was the purpose of this visit, some documentation for 28DL. The site has been of interest to me for years. The old masts were clearly visable on the drive to Oswestry and I always wondered what was at the base. I only visited originally when I stumbled upon the link on sub-brit.

    Even though Tegwin's post has already covered it, I'd post some of my pictures up

    I didn't have a chance to go ino other buildings down the road, which is a shame.

    Some other links on the site

    This is the entrace to the medium wave (HF) transmitter building

    Closer up

    Old sign hidden in the undergrowth on the gate

    2615920985_fb8997e14e.jpg

    Not too sure what this is for, I think it's something to do with the anti-cut fence system

    2615932519_9051e557a9.jpg

    The building itself

    2615922229_5b4ed0e7c3.jpg

    With the serious fence around the site

    2616757826_e17e5ed7fd.jpg

    Lots of these all over the place - lots of volts!

    2616754540_428b64d9bf.jpg

    This is one of the bases for the old masts, plenty of them about

    2616756198_81e878546f.jpg

    The interior of the medium wave building, like the others, is trashed

    2615923471_dd6c72bd06.jpg

    2615924953_34ef394626.jpg

    2616752902_4c515604b7.jpg

    You can see the main building across the road

    2616782272_92dc4ae6d4.jpg

    The main building itself. That massive fence on the left houses the old car park!

    2616784870_f3f420dfc3.jpg

    This is the old video phone entry system. This was in much better condition last year, shame I didn't have my camera at the time :(

    Sorry looking chair in a pile of broken glass

    2615935383_4a724bbfe3.jpg

    This lonley filing cabinet was outside an old outbuilding now used as a cow shed - it smelt baaaaad

    2615945969_a7e2ae5224.jpg

    Massive loading door around the back

    2615940527_90b66b328f.jpg

    My favourite kind of radiation!

    2615944551_ac6facae72.jpg

    The hall on the main entrance

    2616763638_2d76263f38.jpg

    2615939073_c0c1756682.jpg

    I THINK this is the old main VLF hall

    2616769688_ea90e0b564.jpg

    Through a seperate door is what seemed like the admin area, which went through to the big coil room / hall

    Yet more trashed rooms :rolleyes:

    2615953115_93699938a8.jpg

    The massive sized coil room - my flash wasn't good enough :p

    You can see where all the cables would have come through in the top right
