    While doing a reccy with dockfunk for a target for tomorrow nights north east meet had a couple of hours to kill waiting for darkness.
    Decided would have a walk down to the byker culvert and see if we could get in.

    Access wasnt easy - ***********not posted here ***********.
    **********

    Access was a little doddgy as there where a few rungs missing inside the concreat rings and didnt facy the 30 or so foot drop.

    First chamber was about 15 square foot leading int the main tunnel which was a bit niffy but dry as the water is under a slab floor

    the culvert runs for about almost 2 miles and was used as a community shelter during WW2 hence the slab floor

    and also still has a couple of original fittings - guessing this was a fire extinguiser bracket

    plus theres these at every few hundred yards that look like could of been something for ventilation or door mounting points(anyone got any other idea's)

    also found a couple of smaller side tunnels

    this was the only one that looked anything like accessable
    didnt actually chance sticking our heads down there ...going to save that for another day but all the others where full of shit smelling foulness like this

    further along came across this

    these looked original but looks like the tunnel has been renforced at some point here
