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
