  1. This was my 1st ever explore. Not sure what the history of the building is or anything unfortunately as it was my wife that suggested going here together (she is so romantic lol). I'm sure this has been done soooooo many times by anyone that lives in the area but I'm really pleased at the photos I got of this place (I took about 200 in total!). I've also done some really nice edits too
  2. Well, I'm not ACTUALLY grounded, she's just said "Stay near to home, with the new baby and all", so I went back to Nortel AGAIN!!!, but I did do the 50% of this massive site that I missed before!!! Splored with Skeleton Key, UrbanX and Mad Axe Listening Rooms - The triangular foam shapes reflect noise,
  3. I had visited this site a week earlier but was thwarted in our attempt to do the roof by a persistent sec in a white van viewtopic.php?t=1877&f=9 So it was a revisit, this time there were four of us, Myself, Skeleton Key, UrbanX and Mad Axe, a great explore rounded off with a nice pint!!! It's always nice being on the other side of the cameras The rooftop plant rooms Building 2
  4. Nortel acquired the Harlow laboratories, originally Standard Telecommunications Laboratories, in 1991 and continued to use the site for research and development in wireless telecommunication technologies. It was the site of Charles Kao's research in fibre optic communications - Charles Kao was known as "The Godfather of Broadband" and was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2009. The inventions and technology invented by Nortel include 1882 manufactures the first telephone switchboard 1922 Invented the vacuum repeater tube without which, long distance telephone calls would not have been possible 2001 Installing the world's first commercial 3G (UMTS) wireless network The Queen visits Nortel Harlow in 1971 Nortel started shedding jobs in 2002 and have now moved out of town. Half of this massive site is now taken over by various companies that lease floorspace but a huge chunk of it sits derelict Visited as usual with Skeleton Key
