I’d read about the National Gas Turbine Establishment at Pyestock before I went and I was dying to get in there, unfortunately despite walking the entire perimeter (quite a distance) I couldn’t find a way in. I did manage to find a hole in the fence to a smaller compound out the back where I found a giant pool, some rusty ooze and an electrical substation with some cool orange switchgear. It was a worthwhile trip but I was disappointed not to get into the main site, I’m going to get in touch with a couple of Pyestock veterans and see if they’ve got any tips. It’s worth noting that there’s definitely security on the site, I saw at least one security guard patrolling near the front gate.
