    Visited with 2 non-members on their first explore.
    I’d been wanting to visit Whittingham for some time and finally a good opportunity emerged. I was invited to a wedding in Cumbria (bloody miles away from home) and started thinking about exploring whilst up there. A quick map check revealed that I would be passing very close to Whittingham on the motorway on my journey. But there was a problem – I would have 3 non-explorers in the car with me. So I suggested to them that they could come with me – 2 agreed and 1 declined and was dropped off in Preston to wait for us.

    We had a long journey back ahead of us and with a friend waiting in Preston that meant we didn’t have long. It was pissing down with rain and we got thoroughly soaked on the way in. After scaling the fences we managed to find a way into St Luke’s division via ‘the bog of eternal stench’.
    We only had about 2 and a half hours, so we only saw a tiny part of St Luke’s and didn’t get a chance to see inside Cameron House.
    After exiting St Luke’s to bright sunshine, whilst making our way towards the palisade fence a security van drove round the corner and the security guard saw us. It was the weirdest brush with security I’ve ever had. He didn’t ask us to leave, escort us out or even follow us to our exit point. He just told us we shouldn’t be there. He left us to it, which I found odd as although we’d told him we were leaving we could’ve been telling porkies.

    It was a good explore, and I’m definitely going back some time to see the rest.
