    Just happened upon this set of photos while looking at something else on that site, thought it might be of interest to a few on here.

    So the story goes. I've always assumed this square would have been the emergency exit? http://binged.it/VaUkxB

    If you take a look, there's plenty of those squares in that field.

    Very interesting photos. I don't believe the backfilled story - I have seen other stories on line that suggest there's an annual check of the underground space. I know at least one member here has checked a number of leads on this .... no success yet.

    No, I don't think so :(

    I gave you my pictures of a cable shaft didn't I?

    Just had a thought, did this one have a conveyor/lifter for the sewage like Truleigh?

    What are we looking at here? Is the at the bottom of one of those nearby manholes? Lifted one of them and seemed to have a solid chalk backfill at the bottom.
