    Hi, how you doing, first post here.
    I've been wanting to get in here for years, managed it the end of last summer. Boat to nearby then a swim in, then climb up the cliff.

    Looks like a roof collapse, but in places had cables running ontop of it, and also the roof level is unchanged. I think it could be from when the cable from Alum bay to the Lighthouse was laid.

    Winch for the lift, next to the lift shaft

    Looking up the lift shaft, this goes up to the housing thats in the moat just outside the new battery ontop of the cliff.

    Link to a map to show the tunnels, marked in light grey to the north. Dosen't show the tunnel to the reservoir though.
