Me and man gone wrong decided to give the longbridge tunnels a little look. A few years back we stumbled on the east works tunnel entrance as we were looking for a way in the car plant. We had a quick look in but water was high, and we were not equipped. We said we would go back tothe east side but it got sealed not long after that. But luckily the south tunnels were still open. I really enjoyed my visit even though it was wet and muddy, mixed with all sorts of strange fluids, it also stunk in there. The longbridge tunnels were all part of the shadow scheme devised in the Second World War. The scheme was devised to get undisturbed production of items for the war effort. The shadow scheme was actually seen over by Lord Austin, the owner of longbridge. The factory underground could hold ten thousand people, mainly women. They produced merlin engines for spitfires and hurricanes. It must have been a strange feeling working down here, even though there was lighting and ventilation. It was nice to see there was no graffiti tags everywhere. The old tiles in the toilets were nice, as was the old chalk graffiti.

Great report, first class photos. I thought I’d heard these had been infilled. Glad to see that’s not the case and good to see them again.
