I seem to have spent quite a lot of time in Browns over the last few weeks, after not visiting it for several years.

It's been great to rediscover the old place - also been good to take some people around on their first visits.

The obligatory 'LED in the well' shot:

Door to yet another filled-in entrance:

Props, responding to gravity in various different ways:

Now for some 'before and after' nostalgia...

The well in 1990:

Photos taken by me, Mibes and FLY, on various dates and on various random cameras.

Nice pics :) Did you find the ferret hole down there :)
I haven't got any recent pics of the 'ferret hole' but here's one I took in the mid '90s:

I'll take another photo next time I'm down there for another 'before and after' comparison.
