    Been meaning to do the 'hill for best part of a year now, but due to it being so far away from me and being so skint mean't it wasn't possible to simply just 'go'.

    After a late night drive down we got put up by a relative of Mykals, who fed us grilled chicken ciabattas (mmmmmm nom nom nom) and a heated floor to sleep o :p

    Arriving at the hill we met The Riddlers (our guide for the day), EddieKnightmare & RevolutionaryCell

    From the north came Mykal, Angelfishphotography & the floppy man himself Shepy and me!!!

    Entry was worrying, with security constantly prowling, and access not granted it looked bleak! But then success and that was us!

    Apologies for so many pictures, but I've been waiting over a year for this one, and the speed at which devolpments are occuring down at the hill I doubt I'll have time to see her again :(

    For a change I didn't take many piccies on film as we had to move around fast to see the sites & avoid security.

    Also a big thanks to Mr Sandman, who kindly lent me his camera when mine died in the call of duty.

    In the art room now, EddieKnightmare looks for some crazy'ness. The floor is gone in places and the artwork is upto a FOOT deep due to vandels and lazy explorers pulling them all out of the racks. Riddlers pointed out a vast pile of mush white paper scattered across the floor in the next room, these piles WERE the best pieces (both crazyiest, and just plain awesome stuff).

    [​IMG]
    just a few of the pieces, ranging from some really really good stuff, down to mere chalk drawings that you would expect from a 4yr old. interesting considering no children ever stayed at the 'hill (AFAIK).

    [​IMG]
    some poems

    [​IMG]
