    Part 2 of my West Park photo-essay, the tunnels. The pics were taken over a number of visits down below. Most of the tunnels were built by the 'cut and cover' method, especially near the centre of the site, where the broad shallow valley was infilled to create a flat terrace fot the cnetral part of the complex. Other outlying and some deeper tunnels were probably constructed by boring methods. I was on site when some excavations were taking place, and saw the roofs of a couple of tunnels exposed within the excavations.

    For those here who may not be familiar with West Park, the tunnel networks primarily served as conduits for water, electricity and the heating and sewage systems. They vary in size between about 2.5m square to about 1.5m square or less. Most tunnels within the central area run bebeath the corridor network, with spurs to beneath the ward blocks and others running radially from the central compound to beneath the outlying buildings.

    Re: West Park Hospital - Tunnels REPORT

    It's quite mad how much the tunnels have deteriorated in the last few years - when we first went down the lagging was pretty much intact everywhere, even the tunnel lighting was working. Someone has stolen the fan from that circular hole as well...
