    This one has been on our “to do listâ€￾ for a while. We heard it had been sealed, opened and resealed numerous times in the last 6-9 months, so it has spent a while on the back burner. The Wombat got access details from somebody who got in earlier in the year and they needed to swim to get in, so we waited for water levels to drop before this trip could go ahead.
    On arrival we headed for the mentioned access to find it resealed, really good job of it aswel. After 30 mins of poking and prodding we gave up and headed to the other portal hoping for a change in luck and generally to have a nosey. Needless to say we were more successful.

    Near the second air shaft I noticed these weird crystals on the floor.

    As we were between the 2nd and 3rd portals, The Wombat told me to turn the torch out because he could see people at the portal. I looked round and thought 'Oh fuck, busted'. The 2 people then shouted what sounded like Oi, so we started our walk of shame and headed back. When we got to the portal, it turned out that they were 2 local guys interested on Urbex and came to have a look, no torches though. After a quick chat we headed back into the tunnel with them. On our way I found a phone if anyone has lost one(PM me), a lens cap and a flash.

    There was a lot of vapour in this one, more than Ashby. We really struggled to eradicated the mist from our pics.

    Beneath the fifth air shaft we found about 5 dead birds and loads of shotgun cartridges on the floor, The Wombat had a pleasure of treading on one. I had to get a few pics.
