Visited with stealth ali23 nik24 jackal & twisted

This one's been on the cards for years and was good to finally get it done.

Part of the old Royal Greenwich Observatory, this one is the biggest building out of about 8 more dotted around the site.

Originally moved from Greenwich to Herstmonceux due to light pollution it was then removed again in 1979 to the canary islands due to air traffic and poor weather conditions.

It is deceptively big inside ,and what i thought was gonna be a bit of a bland explore turned out to be a good one.

My pics really dont do this place justice so hopefiully the others got some better one's , but for now ......

These steps were awesome ,there was 3 sets of spiral staircases, im standing on one ,the other one you can see, and a big one that went from the top to the bottom of the building.

Re: Isaac Newton Telescope Herstmonceux report

Took a trip back here last night with jackal to get some better pictures because my first load sucked.

Some how on my first visit i managed to miss a floor out with all the dark rooms in so was worth the trip back.

The pics still dont do this place justice its a weird explore with stairs leading into rooms every where.
