I figured you would get it. I hope it wasn't too easy.

Thing was cryogenicaly cooled, took up the whole building. Was more like a fusion installation.

Definitely wasn't too easy. I spent quite a while looking, but thought with the way it was piped, it had to be nuclear of some sort.

I have one in mind. Give me a few minutes. It'll probably be pretty easy, though.

The pipes to the right are actually "light pipes". They channeled early bomb light to test instrumentation a couple of miles away.

It does look like English/Scottish architecture...or could be Welsh...there's loads of places here like the photo, my 1st thought was Conway Castle, but somehow I keep thinking prison...so back to the drawing board

My first thought was Henry VIII (don't ask me why), so I am going to guess Hever Castle.
