…these photos hit me right in the gut, hoo boy.  Something about the lighting, the juxtaposition of nature and industrial bunkers- they just send waves of Myst nostalgia through my body.  I love it.

NGTE Pyestock | Fleet, Hampshire

For over fifty years, Pyestock was host to the development and testing of gas turbine engines. From the 1950s through to the 1970s, it was the largest facility of its type in Europe (if not the world), and the design, experimentation and testing at Pyestock helped to usher in the jet age. [x]
