    I did a revisit recently with my first real underground try out with the d90.
    I would have thought i would have put a report up on this very local tunnel as Ive visited it many many times but it seems not..The entrance all us explorers used was finally sealed months back but as ever ways in have been found.
    So myself Space invader obscurity and frosty decided to have one more look down here before feasibility studies are carried out after a national lottery funding of£56,000 gets underway..there's a huge amount of history out there on the main section i could spout many of the facts myself as its been in my life since 1984 but ill opt for a link and let the pictures of the areas we covered do the rest

    On with some photographs in no particular order as we split up so as not to get in each other's way!!

    Looking at the blockage at boundry road park area heading towards the cannon road section ,approx 25 yard stretch of downfall caused by a burst water main over head in the 1950's...good luck digging that out boys

    Now considering this is in the middle of the track I'm not sure of its purpose as it must have been a later addition after main line closed..there's a big round metal vent looking pipe running from the top away to the right??!

    One last shot looking towards the blocked north portal entrance
