    As a first post decided that these tunnels would make a nice easy explore. History outlined below (Taken from http://www.portsdown-tunnels.org.uk/paulsgrove/chalkpit/radio_station_p1.html)
    Now I'm not a photographer, so don't expect any excellent photos but here are some documenting our visit.

    The portal up on the cliff face. I believe that it was once at ground level, but work on the chalkpit lowered the floor and it now sits a few metres above the ground. Requires a little bit of scrambling to get to it.

    Another one of the entrance. This is actually the emergency escape, but it's more accessible than the main entrance.

    The view just beyond the emergency escape - not actually tall enough to stand up in and required crawling to access the main tunnels.

    Finally enough room to stand up! Taken looking into one of the rooms and the blackness beyond.

    Taken looking back at our way in. The whole tunnel is lined with colliery style tunnel liner except a bit next to the staircase.

    The view looking up the staircase from the lower room, where we entered...

    ...and the view looking down from the top room.

    And finally the shaft where the cables to the radio masts came in. Not a very good photo, but the line of dirt in the far right corner shows where the 3 inch diameter shaft went to the surface.

    Really enjoyed this one and hope to get onto some more extreme UE in the future!

    Nice one. The chalk slope can be a challenge when wet. You did miss the Paulsgrove skull, a carving that has the sculpture world in tears.;)

    I know! Slightly disappointed that we didn't see that, may have to go back at some point to get a photo!
