    Firstly thanks to Dweeb for inviting us along and showing us around :) Explored with Dweeb, Speed and CatVStyle.

    I was a little bit more on edge at the beginning of this one and not because of the splore... but because its the first time I had taken other people in my Landy after the fuel starvation issues on the Sunday just gone, I really need to clean out the whole fuel system :). So after arriving at Cats I pre-apologies for breaking down at some random point, Her only worry was if we were going to be able to get Pizza if we break down on the M6 :)

    That said we arrived fine and picked up Dweeb and Speed and off we set.

    Ive used the info here from raisinwings report, hope ya dont mind but thank you :D

    The site was huge and we did very little top side, so the photos focus on the tunnels below which are a sprawling and seemingly never ending complex. This was a pretty damn good explore of which we found was easy to loose everyone else. I need to go back here at some point as I feel that there is no way I covered the whole place let along the stuff on the top.

    And here are some shots...

    We also had no problems getting back except for an unfortunate fox that decided that crossing the M6 was a good idea :(
