Nortel Sports and Social Club - Harlow - March 2011

This was another milestone explore for me as my 18 and 15 year old sons came with me on their first Urbex ;)

Nortel acquired the Harlow laboratories, originally Standard Telecommunications Laboratories, in 1991 and continued to use the site for research and development in wireless telecommunication technologies. It was the site of Charles Kao's research in fibre optic communications.

This is their employees sports and social club
