We saw the headstocks from the motorway and did a recce a few days before. We didn't have the time to do them there and then, but knew we would be returning to do them. From a distance you can only see the headstocks, until you turn the last corner and see the place, it's like 'OMG!! :eek:'

Anyway, there were workmen in the area of the first access point, grinding and cutting the place away. We went in elsewhere and straight to the top floor...

Sadly the tracks have been stripped.

Next up the headstock, four wheels on two floors...

The wheels were turning in the wind !

At some point, and not surprisingly, we were seen, and someone came to throw us out of this building. Fair play.

So onwards... one of the many winding houses and the next headstocks...

At this point we were being watched, so we came back down and had a look around the other buildings.

The first aid centre...
