This was my first time doing anything like this and sorry about the bad picture. I'm not much of photographer.

Firstly I decide to look for local places and came across the tunnels on the forum. This was amazing as it wasn't to far and thought why not. So after doing endless research I managed to nag a non-member into taking the dark plunge into the tunnels. All I can say was that it was so tight but great fun. I panic when I saw the lake had filled up a little bit with water from the British rapidly changing weather.

History
WT Henley air raid shelter where leaders of there time for cables and electrical components in WW2. The tunnels where designed to protect all the workers from any attacks. Tunnel have these extremely large welded shut entrances which will last the test of time.

Good first effort. Always enjoy seeing this place. As with the photos try to get hold of a tripod and use a long exposure whilst waveing your torch down the tunnel. Experiment with different durations of shutter speed. Your soon gain a better understanding of light painting.

Yeah Tripods are essential for good photos underground in poor lighting. Obviously depends on what camera you are using, but if you can set the shutter speed to a longer time like 2 - 10 seconds, its ideal. As Troglodyte said, you just shine your torch about where you want there to be light in the photo and the camera picks it up as if you are painting the area that you want lit. Practice makes perfect though.
