Second report on here, photos were taken in August of this year, any feedback is appreciated and welcomed! :) I would be pretty stunned if anyone on here doesn't know what Pyestock is so ill keep the history very brief...

History:

The National Gas Turbine Establishment was the prime site in the UK for design and development of gas turbine and jet engines. NGTE spent most of its lifetime as a major testing and development center, both for experimental developments as well as supporting the major commercial engine companies.

For over 50 years Pyestock was at the forefront of gas turbine development and was almost certainly the largest site of its kind in the world. V bomber, Harrier and Tornado engines were all rigorously tested on site, the power of the air house allowed Concorde's engines to be tested at 2,000 mph. All this on terra firma, without a single plane taking off.

NGTE Pyestock closed down in 2000. The Pyestock campus is now in the state of being decommissioned.
