It’s Sunday morning and the weather is half decent for a change so me and Siksty4 decided to take a trip up to Sandsend. Along the disused Whitby, Redcar and Middlesbrough Union Railway stands the 1 mile long single bore tunnel through the cliffs. Access is relatively easy so in we went armed with 3.5 million candle light torch, a Fuji Finepix 6500 oh and some A4 transparent coloured stationary dividers.

Also have a look at the video we made last year . http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=szM1m8aShrM

Once inside a void of blackness and water drops awaited us.

Looking back really puts things into perspective.

Now to checkout Siksty4's new Christmas present (3.5m candlelight torch)....

Further down the tunnel we came to the 2nd Airshaft with a river flowing through it and down to the right through a drainage tunnel.

Now this is where the transparent coloured stationary binders came in, by placing them over the torch we created a great effect.

Stood in the drainage tunnel looking up at the Airshaft using our makeshift filter. Looks like something out of War of the Worlds.

On this visit this is as far as we got due to limited battery power with the torches. However a future visit is planned real soon. I have been right through this tunnel before and you can get right through easily. Prepared to get really wet though and theres some pretty nasty holes to fall down as i nearly found out. Its not for the faint hearted but really worth a visit. Check out Siksty4's post for more pics of this visit using some effects.
