The Pyestock National Gas Turbine Establishment was a UK government-funded facility built to test gas and turbine jet engines for 50 years. In 2000, the site was closed down, computers now able to simulate necessary tests.
Today the site sits derelict, guarded by large fences and Gurkha security guards. Marc Explo and I snuck in sometime in 2009 to have a look at what was left.
