    Whilst exploring a very much 'on top' location looking for something other that the usual long-abandonded factory or pigeon-infested warehouse we found a normally locked door was thoughtlessly left unlocked.... :D

    We had to go for a wander inside of course :p

    Under the building was a huge network of cellars which did not appear to be used for anything much apart from storage and service pipes..

    ...and mothballed equipment...

    We couldn't believe our luck! :eek: After hastily documenting everything we could find, we headed back to the entrance only to find another off-shoot tunnel that lead UNDER the river Don. :crazy

    [​IMG]

    This led to a cast-iron tunnel that was dripping with water, this must have been directly under the river! :eek:

    [​IMG]

    Unfortunately it came to a dead-end here but we found evidence that this tunnel used to house cables of some sort in the past, these have been long since removed. ;(

    Thanks for looking. :)

    It's probably related to the building above.

    Quite an unusual one this, I loved the sheer spontaneity of it more then anything! I think WB and Ojay have covered it in there photographs so I won't bother adding mine :)
