After visiting "Revolver" with Paul Powers we headed back to Stockport.
Paul was pushed for time so i decided to visit a couple of childhood haunts more for nostalgia than anything, Firstly Brinksway Caves, effectionately known as "Maggies Caves" to the locals, this was a popular explore for the local kids back in the day, getting on for 30 years now since i last saw these :eek:
Needless to say they haven't changed.

These caves are built into the Sandstone alongside the Mersey Gorge, Stockport and date back to the 1670's. Years later the Air-Raid shelters
were based on this 'cutting into' the Red Sandstone to provide shelter during WW2.
