These are shots over several visits to Pyestock in June/July. Visited with catscratch, wifebeater, Concentration F, darkzac, jim, UKmayhem, and Duffman.

As I hate those 'you all know the history' posts, here's some craftily not-copied-whatsoever history on the site:
The National Gas Turbine Establishment (NGTE Pyestock) in Fleet, part of the Royal Aircraft Establishment (RAE), UK was the prime site in the UK for design and development of gas turbine and jet engines. It was created by merging the design teams of Frank Whittle's Power Jets and the RAE turbine development team run by Haine Constant. 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.

NGTE Pyestock closed down in 2000. The Pyestock campus is now in the state of being decommissioned pending the building of a large business/industrial park.

Pyestock was used for several scenes in the 2005 film Sahara by Breck Eisner, based on the best-selling book of the same name by Clive Cussler. Internal sections of Cell 3 and Cell 4 and were suitably reworked for the film. These were to represent the internal working of the solar powered waste disposal facility that was the source of the pollution illness that is the main thread throughout the film.
Words cannot express the epicness of the site. Especially as I wandered into cells 3/4 - my jaw just hit the floor at such industrial beauty. On with the pics.
