At what was thought to be an abandoned facility in the heart of Salisbury, there's been movement.
People have been caught on camera coming and going carrying scientific equipment and classified files.

Live Escape Salisbury has perhaps the most comprehensive briefing email I’ve ever seen, for reasons that soon become apparent. It’s pretty amusing, with lines like “don’t turn up drunk – you’ll just get frustrated that you can’t get past the first puzzle, and we will mess with the heating, the clock and your mind,” though one in particular stood out during our play in March 2018: “there is no need to climb on/through anything.
