    To begin with, a bit of history about Box Freestone Quarry

    Another day off work to spend underground with a marathon 7 hours in Box. Visited with MarkyMark, Kinger and Monstar

    We covered a massive area and saw some really nice stuff under there.

    Hope you enjoy the photo's.

    No Box trip would be complete without a picture of Cathedral

    A red door, but not "the" red door. This one is different to the others and no-one seems to know what lies behind this one, or do they??

    "The" red door. If only we were on the other side :(

    I can't remember which passageway this was, can anyone enlighten me? I loved the tall columns here.

    At the top of this flight of stairs was a rusty old ladder to the surface. The ladder was fucking high and only attached at the very top and the bottom. I climbed to the very top and when you're halfway up the ladder, it sways all over the place. The rungs get thinner and thinner, the closer you get to the top and bits of rust fall off as you climb, very un-nerving. The top is sealed but you can see daylight and smell fresh air coming through.

    A really well preserved truck, bit of a mission to get to but worthwhile
