    Good eve to you all!
    Here is the report for the visit to, in our opinion, the biggest WW2 related find ever in Jersey CI. Our little party consisted of myself DJLXP, Capt.Blackadder, and the newly accredited Bunger Boy.
    That's enough posh stuff for now, 'cos these tunnels are truly f*cking amazing!!
    Big thanks to Bunger Boy for his skill and ingenuity in gaining a reasonably safe (i say that, it was lethal) entrance.

    All of the following images and some of the text is courtesy of Capt.Blackadder, the rest of the text, myself.

    This escape shaft was our entry point to the truly massive underground complex that lay deep below our feet, "The stairs to the bowels of hell" really were appropriate words to describe the feeling as we peered into the 100 foot deep shaft....:

    Our slightly un-orthodox entrance, a ventilation hole, 1ft sq., roughly 8 or 9 feet up a wall:

    As we progressed into the tunnels, they became unlined, unfinished, and clearly unstable:

    This truck, an urban legend locally, had been reversed deep into the subterranean tunnel system some time in the late 1940's , and there it still lies, slowly returning to dust... The make and model are still unknown:

    A solitary 7.92 mouser round lies on the ground, now incrusted in rust. This tells us that it was manufactured late in the war, as a high steel content is present. An artefact rarely found today:

    No explanation, still stumped as to why we found these empty glass bottles circa 1940?!

    Better pictures to come in the future (possibly).

    What you can see is a very un-representative of the true scale of the complex, and the 'untouched-ness' of the the place. In some places the original wood shoring is still lying on the ground, although it crumbles to the touch...it is now over 60 years old!

    Must dash, hope you enjoy as there is more to come from us!!

    Last picture from the first visit! (had some trouble with server).
    Anyway, this is the truck again; will endeavour to get as many details of it on the next visit, provided we get out!
