Explored with Rigsby and Rookinella.

Exploring somewhere else at first, we found this place open and took the opportunity while it was there. Realistically people have been going here for a while, all the way to the gold I reckon. But that's another story.

There's a lot of pictures, 40+ in all, but hopefully you'll like them. It's certainly a place that won't crop up very often. There's a lot of roadway shots and I can't really describe them, they're just roads. In fact a lot of the functions of the places we saw were impossible to identify, so I can't help you with that.

So, how did you find out about the way in?

Did you know you were exiting into an army base?

How did you find your way around?

Sorry for all the questions. I'm just very interested.
I Read Secret underground citys for a month or so an had a good look around. The royal arther vid was part of our looking around n chatting with locals about were to look for getting underground. There are amazing detailed maps in some areas of the enire underground site the print was too fine for my eyes but the book had a rough map of most of whats down there. Of course took a compass and explored spring properly first. My final time when i came out i had to navigate on my own with just the light from my phone as id dropped my torch in all the mayhem at the slope shaft. Glad id memorised the way through by then.

Here's some more pictures...

Not sure whats next tho. If the Power egg shop had been a bit cleaner with not so much metal stuff hanging from the ceiling we would've flown through there.
