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

Old sign hidden in the undergrowth on the gate

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

The building itself

With the serious fence around the site

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

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

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

You can see the main building across the road

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

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 :(

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

Massive loading door around the back

My favourite kind of radiation!

The hall on the main entrance

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
