drakelow | the next wave?
21|01|06

So when I happened to find myself in Staffordshire on a sunny winterís day in January, alongside fellow explorer Phil, it seemed natural to pay a visit to Drakelow, now long decommissioned and in the throes of demolition. Perhaps we could find something interesting and worth exploring on the site?

We moved around the siteís perimeter in the fading sunlight, keeping within the tree line. Security were also moving around the siteís perimeter, but within the fence, and being very obvious about it. Overhead the hum of high voltage electricity confirmed that the stationís substation was alive and well, despite the obvious lack of any electricity being generated.
