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.

Visited with Datsun on a rather chilly morning.A fairly relaxed visit with the odd Landy hooning around but all good.Been wanting to get in here for ages as i used to fix olympus jet engines and i wasn't dissapointed.

forgot my tripod :banghead and missed lots so will be back for another visit.
