    no planning for this just went off on a whim we even trusted my newly acquired nail! after patting around and getting scooped by the local youth we found a better way in and were in awe as to the size of the main hall! i hadn't looked at any recent reports so forgot it was the site of track work and the diamond crossing panel of significant interest to me as i work on track, just hope it doesn't come back to haunt me shovelling it in!

    only noteworthy explore of the day we checked out a non existent bottle tip MD had spotted from the motorway! then stopped by Ilkeston Stanton on the way home on the off chance... only to shoot back up the M1 after a reliable source told us of an epic "walk in" only to get collared by the law before even getting out the car!!!

    Been mentioned that the tracks are laid by track work apprentices. makes sense, wouldn't want to practice / learn on a live track, eh?

    Good stuff there enjoyed my visit here recently couldn't get to the track as there were men working on it. What a racket they were making too gave me a shock when I first heard it.
