    A trip along the Cann Tunnel with Dangerous Dave, Mrs Dangerous and Urbanity Junior. It's basically an old railway tunnel, repurposed during the war into a deep shelter that could house 3,000 people.
    The roof is well decorated in flowstone for the first 100 meters, while you crunch the old asbestos roof lining on the floor. Pretty soon the roof lining becomes intact, and there's the odd bed frame, a couple of medical bays and some vertical emergency exit shafts to break up the monotony.
    Photography is made artificially difficult because of the semi-tropical micro-climate and 100% humidity that results in instant lens fogging.

    Anyway here's some pictures:

    Kind of relaxing to go somewhere with absolutely no prospect of being chased!
    The real explore is 2.1 miles away from Cann, but it was getting dark and we was hungry.

    to avoid the fogging get your camera up to temperature before, then take the outdoor cold stuff on the way out. sounds obvious i know..
