    This is Llanberis RAF Reserve Depot (Bomb Store) which is very well hidden in some abandoned slate mines in this lovely Welsh village.

    The scramble down wasn't liked by Squirrel68 but all credit to her for making it. The main area in front was the scene of a massive collapse in WW2 and is now cleared. Two tunnels lead away from this area, both blocked up. One of these was a small gauge railway to take bombs in and out of the storage area.

    The remaining underground areas consist of a two storey set of galleries divided into different bays. There are two massive old lifts remaining to take the bombs between levels. Loads more on Subbrit here.

    Looking back from here, this is the old railway line in and out of the depot

    This tunnel went off to a mill for dumping slate waste, it is blocked up and bats live here

    Inside the main underground storage areas, bottom floor with pillars for added strength

    Downstairs, the tunnels between galleries are square brick doors

    This tunnel leads from the back of the bottom galleries to an emergency exit, excellent stuff here with a running stream

    The upstairs galleries have arched doors instead of the square lintels downstairs

    Two massive lifts used between floors, orginally three but one got destroyed in the collapse.
