Its been a while since a report, we've been tweaking the blog and going through last years reports, and uploading them - we did an awful lot last year, probably fair to say quantity over quality which is expected for a first year into any new hobby. Take a look, we are trying to do something a bit different with a "mission report" style, the vids are all available on the youtube channel too, all accessible from our facebook site... anyhows here goes...

MISSION OBJECTIVE:
GENERAL EXPLORATION

TARGET:
LODSTOCK POWER STATION

TARGET DETAILS:
BOWMAN THOMPSON & COMPANY ORIGINALLY OWNED THE SITE BUT WAS SOLD IN 1900 TO BRUNNER MOND WHOM WITH A SEVEN YEAR CLOSURE RECONSTRUCTED THE SITE PRODUCING SIXTY TONNES OF SODA ASH A DAY. THIS FIGURE ROSE TO 800 TONNES A DAY IN 1926 WITH ALL OF THE BRUNNER MOND ASSETS BEING TURNED OVER TO ICI.
LOSTOCK, A COAL FIRED POWERSTATION WAS DECOMMISSIONED IN 2000 WHEN E.ON BUILT THEIR NEW COMBINED HEAT & POWER PLANT AT WINNINGTON, LOSTOCK IS DUE TO BE FLATTENED FOR A NEW SUSTAINABLE ENERGY PLANT TO BE BUILT ON THE SITE.

OBJECTIVES:
TURBINE SHOTS
CONTROL ROOM

MISSION DETAILS:
SEEN THIS A WHILE AGO, TO BE FAIR ITS AN URBEX CLASSIC AND ITS GOOD TO CROSS IT OFF THE LIST. HAS SOME REAL AUTHENTIC FEATURES, SHAME THE CONTROL ROOM (EXPECTANTLY) WAS MOSTLY A SHELL, BUT REALLY ENJOYED THE BUILDING, SCORED IT A 6. QUITE AN ACTIVE SITE NEXT DOOR, SO HAD TO TAKE SOME CARE WITH SHOTS E.T.C, UNDERESTIMATED THE LIGHT FOR THE VID, SO A BIT SKETCHY. THE POWER PLANT NEXT TO IT WAS RELEASING STEAM INTO THE BACK OF THE SITE, WHICH GAVE IT A MISTY EDGE TO IT, ADDED BONUS BU IT WAS NICE TO RETURN TO THE AREA AFTER VISITING THE SNOW FACTORY LAST YEAR...

STATE OF DECAY: 6
