Hey, i used to do work on there, was called Shell Island by the workers! Got its own customs house and offices, derelict now but still complete!
The island is full of rabbits, no natural predators, and the ONLY access is thru shell itself! They have a "ferry boat" that runs back and forth 24/7, very high security tho people, maybe thats why not much known about it!
If i had known then, i would be in there, once you are on the island, no-one there so you can wander! But as i never knew, i didnt (SORRY!!!!) smack

Modern map (taken from tithe maps website) - not that modern as it still shows the semis which are gone on live maps and google maps.

That's the best I can get from above. Don't forget if you click the two left-facing arrows on the blue line you get a bigger screen, then F11 will give you a giant screenshot! Handy tips courtesy of moi lol.

that is known as shell island, the chances of gettin on it are slim. stanlow has its own police, because of what is done there every thing is strict as. you'd prob have to be a member of the sas to get there and back un noticed

English Heritage and the Local Planning Authority are seeking access to the monument.


Hmmmm, interesting, nice of Shell to leave it to ruin and seemingly not allow the appropriate authorities visit and hopefully conserve whats left of this ageing structure...

Not much left of it as it is, from the sounds of things.
