    On a wet and windy Sunday where else to go but Short's at Rochester. History of the site should be well known - flying boats built here during the war, used by an engineering firm until the 80s when the land around was redeveloped for housing. A massive site inside and straightforward access. Joined here by Syme, J Cadet, CitadelMonkey, tinylittlelil and Porkpie (nice to meet you mate!).

    Some pics -

    The tunnels split in a number of places

    These gates are at the entrance to the vaults area

    Builders of the houses above have used the tunnels as access for drains
