Visited today with Lost, Melvin26bmx, and Andrew, who's not on this site...

Great to finally get in here :thumb

Unfortunately Bryag couldn't make, especially unfortunate as he did the recce - here http://www.28dayslater.co.uk/forums/showthread.php?t=25571&highlight=inchindown

Big thanks to the owners for giving us the keys and letting us get on with it :thumb

It's a big place - map (courtesy of Mike Ross)

The way in to the first tunnel:

Large fan (?) in the wee plant room:

Looking down the tunnel, long shadows :D

All the tanks had these tall access ladders:

And these gauges on the walls - these were in feet, gives some idea of scale:

Trying to light-paint the roof - didn't really work :eek:

Into the second tunnel, this was much narrower than the first. Note Andrew's rather bright (:p) torch - a car battery strapped to his back, and wired into a spotlight!

Entrance to one of the tanks - dated 1941:

Some way in, the tunnels turned from concrete to the natural sandstone:

There was some rather fine fungus :)

More fungus, and the tunnel, looking back towards daylight:

Apologies for the blueness of my pics, borrowed Bryags spare camera - and wasn't too good with it :eek:

This was a great explore, I really enjoyed it, and it was good to meet Lost and Melvin26bmx too :thumb
