    The Witley Wonder - 2012

    title.jpg


    I have had a fascination with this place over the past few years, having read the many articles/threads already out there and thinking one day I should go and see this..

    It's one of those places that end up being pushed aside as 'other' things seem come and go despite the overwhelming intrigue the place offers

    Admittedly Witley Park seems to have had a fair few visitors recently and once again my interest returned, so I decided to get my arse in gear before this fine folly is no longer!

    Props to Spungletrumpet who jumped on board the adventure along with our good friend explorer 200, we managed to brave the baltic conditions and I finally got around to seeing this spectacle first hand :)

    No mankinis were involved this time around unlike his previous visit with Styru & Urbanity :eek:

    However lack of sleep, hallucinations a meteor shower and mooching about rather drenched made for a spectacular and memorable evening of lulz

    The only obvious marker these days is the statue of Neptune which stands on top giving the illusion of walking on water

    I didn't know of this place until recently, it does just look like a stunning place to spend some time and effort to access, good effort :thumb

    The pics aren't bad either, like the one of the person sat in the tunnel :)

    Great night out mate..
    I thought you told me all your photos were shit? :rolleyes:

    Hats off to you for your unnerving insomniac paranoia though.. :D
    All I ended up with were a few 'arty' shots.. I just wish I had a lens that was wide enough to properly capture the place.

    Even so, I've been grinning like a tired zombie all day!
