    If it's already in progress, it'll be worth looking at now

    Exactly, why would you wait until its finished!? it will be a lot easier if its not finished probably, with open shafts etc, hell if your lucky you might even find a TBM!

    There are a few bits in Preston already, if you go check these out - Green Giant & The Solicitor.

    I could do with getting pen to paper surrounding drains in Preston but like everyone else it takes time.

    Yes, it is. Its a case of knowing tide times and making sure you know what the hell you are doing

    Pretty much what I was thinking especially with a 4 metre difference between high and low tide

    Outside fulwood barracks in Preston where the QLR are based is a huge hole under construction. I have been told it is the size of a footy pitch under neath and is linked to the docks. Accessible but not to someone of my skills.

    http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?hl=en...esult&ct=image&resnum=1&sqi=2&ved=0CCcQ8gEwAA

    I acnt work out how it is linked to the work at the docks as the docks are a hell of a lot lower and at least 3 miles away.
