Further random images from other websites started to finally order themselves: a weird
corridor of panels and overhead lamps was discovered behind the instrument panels.
Built in the 1950s and 1960s, Pyestock was a maintenance man's dream; all the panels
had corridors behind them allowing extra access to the circuitry. Behind that was another
corridor with fuses and meters: one for the local electricity company wired in series with
Pyestock’s own meters; everything was double checked. It was here we found a huge key hook
display with one of the keys clearly labelled: "Your guess is as good as mine." That summed up our view of Pyestock!
A door at the
end of the corridor revealed a subterranean stoop under the control room where wiring and further
switchgear snaked and meshed all over the floor. Everywhere we went, we discovered more nooks and
crannies, which lead to further surprises. It was no wonder that the hours were flying by.
