    After our intrepid trip to the North and South Casemates my mate and I headed along the South of the Citadel, where I had a few places in mind that I wanted to check. First on the list was St Martin's Deep Shelter, unfortunately sealed. Second was Archcliffe Galleries, but having got distracted by a map, forgot to check entry. Third on the list was The Grand Shaft.

    Nob jokes aside this is a very impressive structure, although I couldn't find the middle of it looking upwards somehow.

    Lots of history there then. We weren't in the shaft all that long really, once you'd walked down one staircase you'd walked them all, and there were only so many photos that you can actually take of the place.

    Been meaning to tick this one off of the Western Heights list for some time, was a nice little half an hour. It was pretty wet and slippery, so no racing up the staircases for us :D

    Thanks for reading.​
