Charlton Tunnel - Visited By Ojay, Thompski, Woodburner & N00b.

After other underground exploits in the area, Woodburner offered to show us this place, as soon as he mentioned 'Tunnel' I was like, let's go NOW. (LOL).

Not being able to find too much history on this place, but almost certainly used as WW2 storage, with speculation fo storing barrage balloons?

Also there were many dams and reservoirs in the area, and looking at the tunnels/shafts including valves I would say that this was also related.

Access was comedy down this 40ft tight concrete shaft, with a number of rungs missing, and also in some strange arrangement which made climbing down with rucksack in one hand interesting...

Once inside it was obvious this placed had been used recently for some kind of 'party' with numerous associated items strewn about, including snakes & ladders, connect 4 table & chairs, and a full set of optics :D

Having passed through the first section of tunnel, was a second longer tunnel, rather conveniently placed were some candles that made for some cool lighting.

Towards the end section was a grid, quick out with the grid keys Woodburner lifted it up so I could take a look in. Here was a valve, presumably related to the once reservoir(s) in the area

As we reached the end, the tunnel opened up into a vast chamber

Here was a large valve, again I assume once used to control the flow between the resis'

The shaft we were now stood in was hoooj, as I looked up above I noticed some ladders...Up I went....
