    Well its taken me over a month but i finally sought through my photos of this place, it was amazing i spent a full day here and i really enjoyed it

    this site has been done many times (and i will be going back in summer when the greenery is greenest) before i start this will give any info you want on the actual site and doxford engines in general

    Well i head through quite early, spent a few hours exploring the whole of the site, i then met up with brickman and had another explore with him, starting first at a place which was not accessible to him when he had explore before, then we worked round the rest of the site

    i got a ridiculous amount of pictures but i will stick up only a few which i like

    firstly some from my solo explore

    stair case in what seemed like a much more recent building than the building housing the main reception (this is the thin window seen in the picture above)

    the gate house

    and obviously now here's some from when i was going round with bricman

    DSC_9648.jpg
    i have to add this for the amount of time i spent trying to get a shot with it

    i have a few more photos just of some of the old equipment and computers on site, these were as amazing as the building

    DSC_9601.jpg
    (1) what i assume is a typewriter

    DSC_9614.jpg
    (2) an old computer, at a guess a BBC

    DSC_9490.jpg
    (3) another computer

    DSC_9536.jpg
    (4) telephone

    DSC_9538.jpg
    (5) looks like an adding device

    DSC_9537.jpg
    (6) a thingy, dont have a clue what this is


    there was also some (3) which were on poles, they were quite interesting looking

    well i think that is all hope some people enjoyed my pictures, and i have to say thanks to bricman for directions, and a great explore :D
