    Amazing, thanks for posting. I haven't seen any of the pictures before, and at least it's still there and in mint condition.

    And apparently not flooded either!! Albeit constant battle of pumping, but the lower section not under water as BT wants you to believe!!

    I'm not surprised, it's a working fibre optic junction thing type place. God knows where the entrance is now. I think myself and Raddog came the closest quite a while back, that's a different story.

    That would be a very silly thing to do, unless you want to spend time at her majesty's pleasure.

    People do 'silly' things [edit: When I say silly, I don't mean act it, I mean do something you wouldn't and usually with the correct safety gear to do it], some people get away with it, others don't. For many people it's the rush that goes with the hobby. That said, being caught in Anchor would no doubt be a lot harder to worm your way out of than the standard derelict factory!!

    Your more likely to get lost, and then find you can't get out, even if you get that far, which is almost impossible.

    So they have just ripped the Birmingham Post's article with exactly the same words and pictures but failed to credit the original author of the piece (words: by Matthew Goer, Associated Architects, NOT by Birmingham Mail Executive Editor, Paul Cole).

    I know they are sister papers but crediting a story to your name and not the original creator is copyright theft.

    When have the Birmingham Mail ever been known for their profession conduct?

    If it's anything like the Manchester Guardian which there were pictures of on this site a while back (but no more), the site has maps inside. Also for safety, I am sure there are emergency exit signs in case of fire. They won't be locked as they are emergency exits so will be great to use as an escape. It might raise suspicion when you exit out of a rectangle manhole, but by the time they twig, you have already disappeared into the back streets.

    I read this with some interest and promptly went off to do some Anchor Googling... I thought I would share what I discovered...

    A nice bit of Anchor history:
