As I was up this way yesterday I thought I would have a quick look around this place.

The place is about 30 seconds off the A1 and I really do recommend a visit. A place like no other I have been before. The incredible tower is accessed by a scary staircase and as you go up, you pass a floor FULL of relay racks....a smashing place.

The control room is like a UE dream, overgrown machines, ferns, buttons sheer heaven LOL

Two words of warning though, park away as the Transport Police cruise the area (I saw them, don't think they watch this place but it is a major junction or something) and access to the very top control room is a tight squeeze and requires a bit of dexterity LOL
