Alright, I promise I'll not visit here much more. I've been about 15 times now but it's great and it's easy to get to.

After a failed visit earlier in the day and then two other explores (link) myself and Hot Potato met up with Sellers to visit the Victoria Tunnel.

I'm sure you know all about the history of this place by now but in a nutshell it's a 160 year old tunnel built in 1839 for transporting coal to the quayside from Spital Tongues Coilery. That stopped in the 1880s I think. In 1939 the MoD converted it into a bomb shelter to house 9500 people in very cramped conditions. It is now full of nasty gases which make you feel very drunk. Many previous visits into here have been cut short due to people feeling too bad to continue.

Today the air didn't seem so bad and we had a good laugh. I've not posted up all my photos as quite a few are so similar to those I've taken of the place in the past and I don't like to repeat myself so I've tried to focus on stuff I've not looked at previously and shed some more light onto what is a fantastic bit of Newcastle's history.

Actually come to think of it, I might have visited this place loads but I don't think there have been that many threads. I may have done it to hell but I'm sure that other people would enjoy it so if anyone wants to visit, give me a shout.
