  1. This is my third visit and the third time I'm not happy with the pictures but an hour for dinner doesn't really give much time to explore a site and get decent pictures The site over the road is now completely flat but the reports of this side being demolished are a bit exaggerated
  2. This one has been on the list for a while but I've always overlooked it until this visit The site is big, really big and from above ground there is no sign of what lies below I only spent an hour underground so I'll be heading back soon for a revisit
  3. This was our second location of the Day of My birthday explore which was kindly arranged by Spaceinvader as the original plans went tits up so big thanks mate Visited with Obscurity & Spaceinvader This is a massive set of tunnels under the original factory site of which not much stands today and what does is in a bad way.. Although the original use may not have set out for production it seems they where used during www2 Pics.. And a quick parting shot before we got off site Not quite what i expected but apart from the oil water and other sludge it was pretty good
  4. GKN Tunnels Dec '12

    One of those days you wonder to yourself 'why are we doing this exactly?' But we'd come so far already and even as the heavens opened biblically walking to the site we knew we had to do it, it would be an experience at least being in a load of tunnels in the pouring rain....so much so I decided to shoot some video of how it looked!
  5. This is by far one of my favourite places I have been to, which is odd as I try and avoid underground stuff a fair bit! It used to form part of the enormous Guest, Keen & Nettlefold Screws & Fasteners factory in Smethwick, most of the factory has been flattened or is used as industrial units now but the huge underground complex of tunnels remains on site split into two halves, one half sadly being flooded to a good depth. I guess I liked this place purely because it was one of the most dangerous places I've ever been, the tunnels are only just head-height in the centre and there are numerous girders, pipes and the like criss-crossing at all angles, the floors are covered in a mixture of sometimes deep water and oil, oil is bleeding from the ceilings and walls and the smell is out of this world - and to top it off it's all in total darkness It took me three visits to see almost all of it it's that large and I'd go back in a heartbeat. On the second visit in December 2011 just a week before Christmas it began to snow whilst we were inside, the snow filtering down through the various vents in the ceiling was pretty eerie!
