Absolutely incredible!

After giving Tom the fright of his life by popping up from a walkway in front of him (as he throught Id be behind him) I took stock of the Air House. Here were the eight compressors which blasted the air through the array of pipes to the various testing cells around us. The heart of Pyestock.

Even though wed seen pictures of the Air House, nothing prepared us for actually standing within its immense bulk. Adding to the awe of finding ourselves in this space was the silence; cacooned in the heart of Pyestock, nothing could be heard. Which probably made an interesting comparison with the sheer amount of noise this place emitted when it was active.
