Just clarified the name with him - Sutton Bonington. Somewhere between Loughborough and Nottingham.

RAF Newton - looks like someone else got there first with a camera:

Thanks for that link, it's very interesting. It's also very depressing as I can remember a lot of those RAF stations still being open when I joined up, and at 42 I'm not exactly ancient.

How come there was a bust up with that urban exporing site and PH - it looks quite cool!
If you mean the one that redirect the links from here.. Its because they said we ruined one of their hide outs or something silly.
Hmmm - most of the places I looked at on their site were either openly listed or wouldn't take too long to work out, I'm sure.
They got all butthurt when a PHer posted a link about the Manchester canals and how to get in, resulting in anyone on there who was also on PH getting banned, including me despite the fact I had produced some reports on there such as Cambridge cranes, the millennium dome, some teaser pictures of Burlington bunker. So now they redirect any referrals to some st, no idea what as my referrals are turned off.

In return for their butthurt POD created a wikipedia page about them which they repeatedly vandalised in the hope it would be deleted
Silent, have you got links/previous posts about the stuff you've done? Would like to see them, especially the Millennium Dome stuff, please?

Why is he Mr Thicko?

Hes saying, he used to be a member on there but due to affiliation with PH was banned.. And assumed as you've only been here 7 months, CanalGate was before then IIRC.

I wish I had pictures to post up but one of the best places to visit for the thread topic is Cockatoo Island Sydney Australia, lots of history lots of old buildings with abandoned machinery and best of all you can camp there (tents and facilities inc barbecue area provided)

We had a fantastic day/ night with my sis and her hubby on there, it was out of season so very quiet on the island.

A couple of years ago I was on a tour around the Atacama Desert in Chile, and we were taken to an abandoned marshalling yard in a small town. These trains are German and apparently were parked when the gold ran out at the atart of the 20th century and haven't moved since- their remarkable preservation is because it hasn't rained there ever!
