  1. Various bits of cobbled together footage from exploring metro systems in London and overseas. (The end bit at Aldwych is an in-joke). https://vimeo.com/31108510 There's stuff from New York and skyscrapers and stuff on the account, as well as a trip to North Korea. I rarely film, so not much on there.
  2. I took a look around this place back in March and posted it on another UE site but since joining up on here I thought I'd share it on here as well After reading in the local rag (Leyland Guardian) that planning permission has been submitted and is very likely to be passed on building 750 homes and employment units, I decided to get a look at the old girl again before she disappears for good just like the rest of Leyland's industrial heritage. Not much history is written about this place but from what I can gather, it was built in the mid to late 70s as a replacement for the 1st Test Track that was situated off Hall Lane in Leyland. As Leyland was considered one of Britain's biggest industrial towns with the Motors site taking up most of the town, it is pretty sad to see that hardly any traces of it remain. We are bombarded with reminders of Leyland's illustrious past and rich industrial heritage yet it's being mothballed to an extent that hardly any of the workers from Leyland Motors barely recognise. Upto now, this unique site has survived the bulldozers but not so much the Pikeys. A lot of the drain covers have been stolen, leaving dangerous 7-10ft drops at the side of the track and the workshop has suffered considerable damage since I visited here in March. Anyways, on with the pictures... Just as you get through the access point, look to the left and you're greeted by this which I thought was quite amusing. Seeing as the Leyland Cross cobbles were covered over in the last two years, I'd say these are the last set of cobbles in Leyland. I wonder if this is the original sign... Where once there was industry I think this safety barrier might've been pikeyed a bit. Those sweeping corners and high cambers would make for a huge amount of fun around here. This is the bridge that was used to gain access from the roads to test the trucks and buses. A look out from the bridge. The Eyes That No Longer See. Finally, the Track begins to Give Way to nature. Thanks for looking...
