We decided to do something on the way down again to the Piss-Up in Bristol.
So Pyestock it was... Myself, Madmax, Tims, Converse1, Squirrel911 & Zerocool spent several good hours, taking in the usual sites that are on offer!
A fantastic site, which deserves alot more time... but we only had a few.

History:
For over fifty years, Pyestock was host to the development and testing of gas turbine engines. From the 1950s through to the 1970s, it was the largest facility of its type in Europe, and the design, experimentation and testing at Pyestock helped to usher in the jet age. From running up Concorde's Olympus jet engines in a simulated supersonic conditions through to the endurance checking of every gas turbine installed in the ships of the Royal Navy, Pyestock's credentials were extremely impressive.

Anyway... enjoy a few shots from the visit:
