    I briefly visited Moonwalker a few weeks ago but ran out of time and just took a few pics which I've included here. This time, I went back and did the whole thing. Moonwalker is huge and is the most slippery bastard I've ever explored - you get more friction on ice or a polished floor than this!

    To be honest, I found it slightly disappointing as you can slog on for ages without coming across any features apart from occasional breaks of daylight once in a while. The only features are basically within a couple of hundred metres from either end with a mile or more of boredom in between. Having said that, the features it does have are great. :)

    Cheers!

    I can't believe it was well over 7 years ago when I took these pics.
    Don't think this one gets many visitors tbh. It's well worth a visit though :)

    Brilliant shots . Been planning on getting into drains lately (figuratively and literally) is this moonwalk one still doable? (I would assume so?)

    The doability of drains rarely changes. Moonwalker is a nice easy walk-in.

    One person is, and they're epic :p

    Like siologen said, access rarely changes. Drains are quite easy to find, look on a map for a brook or river. Follow it until you come across a gap in the blue line, go down and check it out :thumb
