    Visited the tunnels under Longbridge with Bubblehead on Friday we also took a boat to have a look what was the other side of the flooded tunnel. There was not much to be honest only 2 sets of steps that went up but were blocked up and the tunnel its self was blocked up. I had seen photos of the tunnels but had no idear how big and long they were. There was lots of cool bits and bobs scattered about too which was a bonus.

    Bubbleheads idear on the boat he wanted to know what was over there so asked me to bring it. The notes were in the little room just on the right hand side of the first tunnel mate. It was funny walkin up the road with a black bag with the pump and boat in and a oar.

    They're in the strongroom just past the backfilled entrance that is behind the admin block that they recently demo'd, the one with all the exhaust pipes stacked up in the corner.
    I won't start a new thread for my pics as i only took ones of what was beyond the flooded section and to be honest aren't very inspiring. As Rigsby said not much to see just a lot of old doors and some boxes. Looked like the area was originally another entrance that has been bricked up and i would hazzard a guess turned into a storage area, gutted the stairs had been capped as i have no idea where they come out.
    But still i managed to get an explore done in a boat, seeing as it is the year of the boat and all:D
