    Well I thought the first test of my new negative scanner might as well be some pics I took on a visit to Monkton Farleigh. I can't be certain of the date but I'd guess at 1998 (certainly pre 1999).

    Back in the days when access was easier this is the Slope Shaft building where access to the tunnels was possible (now sealed)


    Bottom of the slope shaft

    Some photos from inside. You've seen better from OT and others' trips I'm sure

    And finally... these pics are from the Marshalling Yard at the foot of Farleigh Down and the slope shaft into Farleigh Down Tunnel before the scorched earth policy cleared the undergrowth. Imagine coming across all this in the woods. :D

    Contrast this with a shot just a couple of years later from roughly the same spot as the pic above


    And the last couple, again Farleigh Down

    Hope you enjoy.
