Whilst exploring a very much 'on top' location looking for something other that the usual long-abandonded factory or pigeon-infested warehouse we found a normally locked door was thoughtlessly left unlocked.... :D

We had to go for a wander inside of course :p

Under the building was a huge network of cellars which did not appear to be used for anything much apart from storage and service pipes..

...and mothballed equipment...

We couldn't believe our luck! :eek: After hastily documenting everything we could find, we headed back to the entrance only to find another off-shoot tunnel that lead UNDER the river Don. :crazy

This led to a cast-iron tunnel that was dripping with water, this must have been directly under the river! :eek:

Unfortunately it came to a dead-end here but we found evidence that this tunnel used to house cables of some sort in the past, these have been long since removed. ;(

Thanks for looking. :)

was there any indication what the compressed air was used for?? it must still be in use as there is a modern switch above the compressor!!

B..
It's probably related to the building above.

Quite an unusual one this, I loved the sheer spontaneity of it more then anything! I think WB and Ojay have covered it in there photographs so I won't bother adding mine :)
