    Visited this place about three times back in 2010,Never have been happy with these pics but in my defence i was very very drunk most the time so they are what they are..

    Fast forward 3 and a half years and i was back down here.Saw a report go up on this last year and after a while we went to pop the lid and have another look round,the lid refused to lift more than a few inches so after a couple of attempts and feeling a bit puzzled we left it .
    Recently pics have been appearing on Failbook so we assumed the alternative access point had been used!
    On getting in my first port of call was the far end to see why that cover wouldn't lift,Seems some BELLEND had tied rope under the cover and onto the ladder inside which would account for it not lifting,Ropes still on the floor and in one of my pics..

    Brief info..

    The cannon rd section lays in between the westcliff and the main section (train tunnel)..access into the main section is stopped by about a 25m long stretch of roof fall and at the westcliff end by a sewer pipe cutting it off and running into the westcliff section and up what would have been the ellington section now after a 30 odd foot crawl totally consuming the tunnel itself...

    visited with Spaceinvader,Obscurity,STeALtH and his missus..

    pics in no real order

    These are wicked pics mate, we tried to get into these a few weeks ago, we located the lid and popped it up only to find there's a padlocked gate directly under the lid! I was gutted, I also popped a lid in Ellington road to find it was a shaft which we had no chance of getting down, any advice on how to get in there? You've seemed to have cracked all the tunnels I've been researching for weeks lol
