    Well I say new, I've been snooping around here a while but have never posted! I'd love to put a report up of the places I've been but want a good set of photos first.

    I'd love to meet some fellow explorers to do some drains and visit some underground sites in or around Manchester or Stockport. I've seen a bit of the area already but solo, which is neither as safe nor as fun!

    Gimme a shout if yer about, i'll gladly go anywhere i've already been if you can show me how to use my camera properly ;)

    Here's a few sites i've been to....

    Welcome along.

    Hmmm, now then, a couple of recognizable tunnels you have there! Or are you "Stringing" us along ;)

    I'm interested in how far you pushed along that particular one.

    Absolutely. I feel bad about it now, but someone nearly got hypothermia pushing the through route.

    Not to turn a "hello" thread all preachy, but it was a lesson in not pushing someone beyond relative comfort.

    Anyway...LETS GO TUNNELING! ( just not Tin Brook tonight, the lid blew off with the flood :eek: )
