The photography rule only applies if you are within the boundary of the nuclear installation, there is nothing stopping you from taking photos from the road as the photography rule doesn’t apply to you. They cannot enforce site rules to a member of public outside their site. You can take photos and videos of anything that you can see from a public place. Now I wouldn’t suggest going to a nuclear installation and recording all access and egress points of the site as that would undoubtedly raise concerns but a video of the siren wouldn’t be too bad compared to what I’ve just said.Eclipse DDS wrote: ↑Thu Feb 16, 2023 9:17 amYeah, I did ask about the whole no photography thing, and they said that it is because there is still some important stuff on-site. The place used to be used to make nuclear weapons, after all. I think that you are allowed to photograph the site, but just not in proper detail, as in not close up. Honestly, I am not too sure about whether I would be permitted to upload the recording here, so I will ask the staff again at some point. Another slightly confusing point is that fact that you can see into the site relatively clearly on Google StreetView, which obviously goes against their policy, but I don’t know. There is a LOT of signage around the site warning of criminal fines if photos are taken, so they don’t take this kind of thing lightly.BusBedford87 wrote: ↑Wed Feb 15, 2023 10:19 pmThat surprises me that it’s not allowed to be released. If the siren can be heard from off site, which presumably it can as it needs to fulfil its function as an outdoor warning device and warn neighbours and residents beyond the plant boundaries, then what’s to stop me from recording it from off site, say in a field or something?Eclipse DDS wrote: ↑Wed Feb 15, 2023 4:05 pm
Will do. That reminds me, I forgot to say this before but the Chapelcross ex-nuclear power station tests its Klaxon GP6 on the first Thursday of every month. Also, it might just be me, but when I recorded it (the file of which I don't think that I am permitted to share, I had to gain official security clearance to do so), it sounded like there were 2 sirens on the site. It may have just been the main siren echoing, but the windup just seemed very distinct.
Official security clearance seems logical, but I’m not sure why they wouldn’t want people to know what the alarm sounds like.
So yeah, I will ask the staff about the recording again.
Ah damn it, but i still think that area must have sirens sonewhereDigisirran wrote: ↑Fri Sep 15, 2023 5:09 pmDoesn't look like one when you move further up the road.
