    Quick trip to Whittingham after work, with a mind to checkout the tunnels.

    Gained access, and went straight into the tunnels. It's weird in the tunnels, at some points could see my breath, it was that cold - and other times it was too hot.

    not a lot of head room in this one!

    trickier where to step as well at times
    2>[​IMG]

    plenty of lighting boxes and such down here, oddly - not working? hehe. who left the bottle of oasis?

    we got to an junction, and took a right - heading down toward st margrets.

    as marked-man had said, it was flooded, we stopped for a while here so i could drop my torch in the water. that wasn't too clever, it drowned. luckily the spares came out.

    so doubled back and headed back toward laundry. few more shots from in the tunnels

    very rotten emergency lights

    i was playing with the torches whilst my friend was putting plastic bags round his feet (told him to bring wellies!)

    most of these pictures were taken with the flash, drowning out the darkness. It is dark down there.

    Into the laundry complex:

    had wanted to see this room for a while, not too sure why - i just like it.

    st margrets is 'off' which is lucky, because it's been flattened!
    11>[​IMG]

    what was all this lifing gear used for?
    12>[​IMG]

    would be fun fault finding on this board..
    13>[​IMG]

    very heavy switchgear

    no pool sticks to hand, so didn't have a game
    24>[​IMG]

    everyone else has taken a photo of this, so why not me?
    25>[​IMG]
    26>[​IMG]

    anyone know what this is for / used to do?

    27>[​IMG]

    that's all for now. did some pana type shots of the insides of the big building, will have a play with autostitch later and see how they come out.

    (and i'm sorry if you lot are getting bored with my whittingham reports.. but i've got so much left to see!)


    ta to marked-man as well:
