This is a place I've seen through the car window hundreds of times as a child and it's nice to finally know what's inside. I can't believe that I've left exporing this place so long; If I'd have known what it would be like, I'd have done it ages ago.

I won't even attempt a history because clebby has written an excellent one. Here's the link: http://www.28dayslater.co.uk/forums/showthread.php?t=46233

The glare in this place made getting decent pictures difficult, so I'm sorry if they're awful.

One of the best things about this place was the original structures and features that have been left mainly intact.

Before we left, we wanted to find the control room. Luckily we did, but unfortunately, the pikeys had already been and stripped most of it for copper.
