once I met with Reflux had no idea of the plan for today,
we went too Greenside tunnel ( which I had knew about but hadnt been).
access? well I hate palisade too say the least,
sure my fellow explorer will be along too tell you about this. :D :p
thanks too reflux for suggesting and taking me to this tunnel,much appriciated :thumb
well worth the visit.

The tunnel is 618 yards long, twin bore
The west portal lies in a cutting, this is sealed with palisade.
The arch roof is made of bricks,
while the walls are made of stone.
Theres 1 air shaft 1/3 of the way from west portal and 2/3 of the way from east portal, this been capped with concrete.
refuges were on both sides of the tunnel, made of bricks.
The east portal lies in a steep cutting with a retaining wall on the left side, this is sealed with palisade
this is due too be filled in with debris too street level but nothing has happened yet due too opposition.
opened in 1877 and closed in 1964.

Well short and sweet mate ;)
I'm saying nothing about Palisade or the Kevlar shirt you must have been wearing lol
I think plan A would have been better if we hadn't pulled in behind Secca in his van lol

Need a decent torch mate ;)
