    Hi all, I have lurked casually for many moons and believe I may even have registered in the past and not got round to posting, so felt it about time that I did!

    Based just outside Nottingham and fairly limited in experience to actually exploring, have mainly enjoyed perusing other great explores, but always keen to do more.

    I went to Aston Hall Mental Hospital a couple of times a few years back before the clowns arson'd the hydro pool, and did the old Trade Centre in Long Eaton recently (when there was quite a bit left). Have also discovered an interesting looking storm drain over by the site of the now defunct eastern part of Toton Sidings...will go along when the weather gets better and actually take a camera this time to see if there's anything of interest.

    Interested to hear from other locals if there's a new site that's worth a peek, jointly or severally! I saw someone mention in another post recently (funnily enough another Nottingham newbie) that there aren't too many up this way, but any intelligence is appreciated.

    Sadly I think I will have moved from the area by the time the Midlands Meet Up comes around (typical).

    But anyway, apologies for the ramble - and hi!

    Hello and welcome from another Nottingham member; I think I know which drain near Toton Sidings you're thinking of?

    Thanks crusader, good to finally get on.

    Oh yeh? Is it worth a nose? Not seen a report...but then I've not actually looked! I peeked inside but the light from my phone only got so far, plus I had my dog with me, so couldn't see if it actually branched at the far end in the gloom...

    I've not explored it yet. I merely saw it while on the Red Arrow a couple of times.

    KM - I did write a reply about what I was in to...perhaps it hasn't been moderated yet... If it never shows up I'll pop it all down again!

    Crusader - if that's the case, then we're possibly speaking of a different one! I'll do mine in a couple of weeks and share the info if it's worth it! I gather yours is visible from the A52 at speed then? Must be sizeable! In fact, thinking geographically, it's potentially exciting that they might well link, because if so, that means it really is fairly extensive!

    CC - thanks for the welcome. Just read your report on Beechdale which I enjoyed :thumb Will be good to share info!

    My channel is: Urbex Hunter. Only have 3 videos up at the minute, but the latest one (The warehouse) was my personal favourite!
