I honestly can't seem to find any information at all on this location, so i don't know if it's a bit of a shushed secret from the public, but ah well.

Flip took me here for a night shoot in the middle of a blizzard which provided for an interesting drive through the mountain roads of Buxton.

When you enter this place, you go down a fairly concealed (but public) footpath before you encounter a large sign that reads something along the lines of:

"For your health and safety, you are advised not to enter these premises. However, if the red flag is flying full mast then an explosion is imminent"

Next time i go i will grab a photo of this sign and add it to this thread.
Unfortunately due to the nature of night photography, i only came back with three shots,
so this shall be an unfinished thread which i will add to on my next trip.

Here's some pictures of blown up trains:

Re: MoD Government Testing, Buxton

Nice one dude- ill add a few of mine if ye don't mind?

Its a health and safety testing site - the largest in europe i beleive. I can only assume that these are related to the 7-7 bombings as further down the line theres an artificial tunnel with a 2nd lot of blown up tube trains...

There was a thread on this time ago if anyone remembers...
