a couple of places I fancy exploring, are the ruins of Ravensworth castle, near Gateshead, and old RAF Spadeadam in Cumbria, where there are old delapidated aircraft, strewn around the place. Have contacted someone about obtaining permission to take photos at Ravensworth, will try and do the same for the airfield.

Spadeadam - isn't that where Blue Streak, our abandoned entry into the space race, was built and tested?
My father spent a long time, whilst he was working for the British Oxygen Company, delivering tanker loads of nitrogen to the site from Teesport

You are correct Sir, blue streak launch pads are still at Spadeadam.

Went to Pontins today with Gary and Lydia, a huge sit that is due for demolition next month to make way for new housing.

What a great place to explore.

Where do you find these places Andy, and how do you not get caught?

We have nothing like that down this way, and if we did, it would be under fort knox.

Shame about the snooker tables

If they had been rescued and restored, they'd have been worth a bit!
