    Me, Iron Monkey and his mate had yet another epic trip to Middleton on the what was the hottest day of the year so far lol.
    This time we finally had the place pretty much cracked, finding the Crusher bays and Conveyors that were further in than we'd been before. It felt like quite an achievement actually get from one side to the other (daylight to daylight). The massive Glowsticks once again proved themselves invaluable in our navigation of the tunnels.
    Anyway, here are some of my shots:

    Yes mate, I believe we did. I think we've pretty much seen everything now, but I'm sure yet another future trip may hold some more surprises ;)

    Nope, we didn't see any of that, although we are planning to go back. The problem is this place is so vast that finding stuff takes a while.
