  1. History During WW2 a British resistance unit was created, named the 'Auxiliary Patrol'. These were a sort of top secret elite Home Guard that were given the most modern weapons and equipment. Each member of the 'Auxiliary Patrol' were taken from the Home Guard, Vetted and made to sign the official secrets act. This highly secret unit had there own underground hideout for in the event that Britain was invaded. Each hideout was fitted with bunk beds and could sleep up to 8 people. The Explore When they built this, they intended for it to be well hidden. I have to commend them, they did a mighty good job. I spent the best part of an hour wandering aimlessly round woods around a vague marker I put on google maps from SUBBRIT. Eventually I found it with bit of luck and some extra location clues I found online. The SUBBRIT location was actually a little off as it turned out. The underground hideout has two entrances. One is down via a square shaft that requires a ladder to get down. The second way in is via the 'Emergency exit tunnel' which is a concrete tunnel that is roughly a meter in diameter and comes out on the banks of an old pond. I actually found the emergency tunnel first, so decided get in touch with my Andy Dufresne side and crawl down it. It was actually no-where near as claustrophobic as it looked as you can sit up and turn around in it quite easily, but it is about 20-30m long. The bunk beds are all still there, but very rotten. The floor is covered in damp mud but everything else is in very good condition considering its age. When I was heading out I went to find the other entrance, which I must have walked right by the first time. It was covered by a couple corrugated steel sheets. Overall, a decent little explore
  2. While in the area we popped into this place, not too much left and no access to the underground but a good little wander. History Copenacre Quarry was purchased by the MOD in 1940 and, following an urgent request for underground storage in 1941, made available to the Navy. The estimated cost to convert the quarry was £192,500, but the Navy demanded the best of everything and within weeks costs had exceeded the agreed budget. In 1972 it was announced that Copenacre was to close, but with a staff of 1,700 this raised concerns. Following a Public Enquiry the depot was retained indefinitely. However, Copenacre closed in 1995 and was sold off in 1997. Some pics Thanks for looking
  3. this unit was a "oak furniture store" but this was its cover story it was really a drugs unit and was a apparently one of the biggst hauls of drug related stuff in Hertfordshire 2012 *(if there's any spelling/grammar mistakes sorry about that but my dyslexic )* full set : http://www.flickr.com/photos/samcain/se ... 517777183/ the bosses chair they took this saying to far load of old coins in boxes this has to be a joke the "left overs" the bill must have been massive if they were running that many lamps/fans love chairs whist we were exploring a indian bloke walks in and calmly take the mower one of the weirdest things to happen when the police raided this unit i dont think they cared about turning off the alarm it was beeping for the whole time we were in there and i checked a few weeks ago and it is still beeping the "work" that the "company" "did" this room stunk and was so hot one of my mate thought it would be funny to stand out side and turn on a police siren app on his iphone and shove it thru the letterbox needless to say i shat my self but the video he got was totally worth it the alarm box on the building was just the casing of one and they used it to cover the extractor fan so. clever loads of camera gear boxes
