    Well well well.
    Didn't really want to put this up.
    But it's raining.
    And I'm Bored lol.

    So yeh, this (if you could class it as one) UE was done about a month ago, but i didn't really think to upload and do a report because i didn't take many pictures that were interesting, and it basically was a really crap UE, but a good day none the less.

    It started off by meeting up and getting the train to liverpool central and meeting people along the way. We made a 'brief' stop off at Waterloo to go to the legendary Tony Almonds (that place is why waterloo is famous) for some minor equipment and food, then on to seaforth and litherland where we stupidly got off, because one of the group thought cosco was here, but it wasn't :( , so we had to walk for about 30 minutes to get to cosco, only to get kicked out :wanker . We then walked into liverpool, to get some stuff and made the journey back to Formby!

    The walk to the factory seemed like a long one, it just didn't end! But eventually we made it to the footpath, and walk across the fields and past the rifle range and entered the grounds of the power house, but only to be stuck on an entry plan. We walked around atleast once (EEK! :eek: ) and the entrance we were supposed to go in was blocked by a load of scrap metal welded together (dlkkbmnsflnkdlkf) and entered underneath the asbestos shelter (clever i know :crazy ). I was still in shock at the size of this place, and couldn't wait to start snapping away with my Canon for the rest of the day.

    Had a good old explore, it's a great place, but really dodgy. The sounds of objects clanging together as they dangle from the roof in the wind shit me up on a few occasions. The place is a shit-hole lol. I was planning on exploring the basement next, which was a real dissapointment, as it was hyped up to be huge, and it's tiny haha.

    There was one point where we heard a clang, that wasn't a roofy clang, and then a whistle. We all ran into the basement, with me infront with my 1 million candle torch (hoorah!) and then i realised i had left some stuff somewhere :eek: , so i left the others in the dark to get my stuff, and we walked up a ramp into the light, and there, squatting in the corner was a guy with a balaclava, a jumpsuit, and a BB Gun, which looked like a real gun form where we were.
    Well, i'll tell you one thing for free. I actually nearly did shit myself, but he came over and itnroduced himself, and we realised he was a friendly, but i was still on edge, and was clutching at my chest because of the sheer shock this guy had just given us all.
    We got talking to him and he had told us about what he did for a living, it turned out he was a contractor, and he did stuff like this for practise because he does alot of exploring abandoned places. He told me thta he'd just been up on the roof, what a mad man, climbing on the roof in high winds, he's got some solid balls! He said there wasn't much good up there, and he had made his way down into the big hall, and whistled and banged so he'd know if anyone else was in here, and he heard some shuffles and whispers and realised he wasn't alone, it was just us!

    After a long chat, we decided to go and have a group photo outside, and say our goodbyes to the masked explorer.
    It was a great day, and i wish i had explored more of it, and the supposed underground sewage network that follows up to it.

    Now heres the pics!
    Couldn't be bothered to edit them.
    Might seem a bit weird and squashed :(
