Had the chance to revisit everyone's favourite power station a few months ago. Yep, still doable! It was good to get in and grab some shots with the lights on. Nothing you haven't seen before, with the possible exception of some original Control Room Feeder Log Sheets we found in there - Dated November 1977 :)

And in case you are wondering what the rest of the place looks like now - here's a crappy phone shot showing the scaffolding. The entire centre area was crammed full with more scaff than you possibly imagine!

Nicely done mate, always get people asking me if this is still doable and the answer is always go and have a pop at it!

Awesome mate, nice to see someone has been and done it again. Loving those dials, I'd be in heaven haha! The pics are stunning, really impressive power station porn!

Fantastic, great to see it still being done. :)

People, get off your backsides and go exploring if you want to see somewhere, don't wait for someone else to do it so you know it's 'doable'. This visit is from months back now, so any access they used has probably changed. Just get out there, explore, have fun - that's what it's all about. It's always been 'doable' and probably will continue to be right up until the development draws to a close, the game just changes and evolves as the development progresses.
