    Edison Swan Cable Works or Stowfield Business Park, Lydbrook

    tumbles, Wellingtonian and Seffy.

    Some brief history for you, shamelessly stolen...
    After not exploring anything other than high stuff for a while, it felt so good to smell that damp smell that is a DERP. After plans to do something else fell through, tumbles suggested we go and have look at the old cable works in Lydbrook, which he's done and fancied a revisit to. It's been on the cards for a while, but we hadn't actually got around to it as of yet.

    So after a cheeky Maccy Ds and a pleasant drive through some of the Forest of Dean, we got down to it.

    Our trip didn't go entirely to plan, but we did get to meet some very friendly Gloucestershire Police officers, who knew we meant no harm and sent us on our way. There is a situation that needs to be addressed on this site, with regards to security and their use of our canine friends (see bottom of the thread).

    Due to the whole getting spotted incident, I didn't actually take any externals… Looking back I am rather gutted about this, so have had to steal one for now… DOH.

    An areal view of the business park as a whole...


    Unfortunately, we only really got round about half of the site, but as tumbles said, that was by far the best part...









    This was the closest I got to an external...





    This was the last shot I got, before our trip was cut short rather suddenly


    After that, we were escorted to the gate by a security guard and his Alsation, before being told to wait for the police.
    If said guard or the site owner is reading this, let me draw your attention to a particular clause of the Guard Dog Act 1975:

    There was not a single sign anywhere. Sure, there were signs warning that the premises are protected (no doubt by a dodgy security company), but not one warning of the use of guard dogs. It looks like someone could soon have a nice hefty fine coming their way. I shall also be bringing this to the attention of the local constabulary.
    We were then told, after being escorted to the main gate, that if he caught us, or anyone else again, the dog would be let off the lead and set free. Well my friend, let me draw your attention to this part of the legislation...

    So try that mate, and I suspect you'll have a serious law suit on your hands.

    I believe the security company in question is called 'National Security Group', but cannot recall exactly what the signs said.

    Cheers for looking, and if anyone else is planning on visiting this site, feel free to PM me for more info/bit of extra help etc. :thumb
