Finaly, after several years of putting this 'to the bottom of the list' everything fell into place this weekend. Ive not scared myself (or grossed myself out) as much as i did here in a long time but it was well worth it. This is problably in the top 10 places ive ever been!

Tucker an Urban Junkie were legends like normal and apart from a small freak out at the pigeons, a slight deflation and some tidal woes (again!) everything went smoothly. Even had a cup of tea afterwards! :thumb

Well worth the trip from Devon to see the sub, many thanks to soviet sub for the tour/info.

Another great pano Urbanity, nice one.

I would recommend it to anyone who is interested, but do it 'officially'!
