Whatever You Just Pressed, Unpress It!


"On this route, we’d be passing the main entrance to Pyestock and despite being late, I couldn’t resist a look. "Hang on... from this direction, we could turn left and flank the eastern side of the site." I was anxious to check out the whole perimeter as finding another infiltration point to the east of Pyestock would help with our explorations of Admiralty House and the remaining buildings on that side. Soon the familiar security fence sprang into sight. What we didn’t expect was the road to end at a security barrier with a guard peering at us. "Not very discrete," I murmured as, for the second time that day, I did a three point turn and disappeared in the other direction."
