First explore of the year. Visited with Webbley and my new camera.
Good little explore, tricky to find and the worst stair case you could ever go down! 50 years old, cracked, missing steps! This place is full of Asbestos and its soo dusty down there! Armed with our cameras and P3's we went down.



History from Subbrit:
British Railways left Deepdene in the mid 1960's and the house was demolished in 1969 with a modern office block being built on the site. For many years the tunnels lay forgotten in the bushes to the rear of the office block but in 1997 local children started a small fire just inside one of the entrance tunnels and when the fire brigade came to extinguish the it they found the whole network was heavily contaminated with asbestos, so much so that they had to dispose of all their clothes after the incident.

As a result of this information, a survey of the tunnels by Redhill Analysts who confirmed that most of the complex and two of the small surface buildings were heavily contaminated with both white asbestos (Chrysotile) and blue asbestos (Crocidolite). Shortly afterwards all four entrances, and the contaminated surface buildings were sealed.
