So yeah i just won this award and a cheque for 200 pounds for my photography work at pyestock.
I just want to thank all my partners in visiting pyestock, my family and all of you who read the blog. Thanks 😀
Before we get cracking, these photos belong to Felix Russel-Saw, and are shots of us on site, rather than shots of the site. I chose to do this simply because our other shoots don’t flaunt the good times we’ve had during infiltrations. Copyrights belong to Felix and If you’d like contact details to purchase prints, or request photographic service, let me know and I’ll pass on your details to him.

Armed with tripod and iPod, I went over to the ponds for tonight’s shoot (lack of car seriously limits my options). It’s too light so I end up having to wait for the sun to set further behind the curvature of the earth. I see a group of kids armed with flashlights heading undoubtably towards Pyestock, and I shed a metaphorical tear for the vandalism about to happen. Anyway heres the fruits of tonight:
Over seven visits, a decade of dereliction, some of the best times, with the best partners in exploration, crawling through dirt, snow and every tunnel we can find, capturing as much of the beauty and the scale of Pyestock as we can. The pints in the computer house, the post-explore burgers, the blood, sweat and the fear, the security scares, the dog chases and the jeep hunts. The death knell has been rung, but Pyestocks legacy will always live on.
So sunday, we spent a fair ammount of time away from the blistering heat, burrowed down in the Subterranean depths of pyestock. I didn’t take this photos, they are of me, and I am not claiming ownership, I loved how they turned out. Taken by Adam Thomas, check his work out over at http://www.AWTPhoto.com.
A brilliant mission today, with security keeping us on our toes, and bumping into some fellow 28dl pals.
Set up with a little help from felix!
