Ahhh...Cwm.

Well I only been there once but comparing it now to some of the great pics I've seen on here to me..it looks a lot different. I got black when I went, I dont know if thats the norm but wasnt expecting it.

We are well up for going back as we didnt get to climb all the way to the top so be nice to see the view !!!

If your from this area give us a shout maybe we could meet up...you could show us a trick or two?? (as we are quite new to this)

      Came across this one; Kinmel Hall near Rhyl - North Wales. Not too far from me so I'm going to do a little research about reaching the place via public transport (unfortunately I don't drive..).

      Some history on the Hall:

      After a quick text to Wevsky one bright sunny Saturday morning Dover bound we went, Was a really laid back easy going visit the place is so quiet its eery !
      History, a bit scarce to say the least but heres what little I could find;
      During a new fear of invasion from Napoleon III two new dry moats where added to the existing citadel defences. The northern and the southern moat both had their own casemates built. Between these there was also a defensive caponier built, but sadly this was filled in during the 1960's by the Dover Corporation and they gradually destroyed many parts of the Western Heights.
      The northern casemates are a lot larger than the southern casemates, with six separate rooms whereas the southern casemates had eight.
      So here goes with a few of my Pics taken on the Day, Difficult choosing them as this place is expansive to say the least and I took a fair few





















      Sorry about the sheer amount of pics, I took hundreds and this is just a few of them

      Thanks to Monk for posting this and meeting up with us i must admit i nearly had a little sex wee when i saw this place.It is even better in real life and worth the efoort..
      in attendance ,Myself Urbanginger,SpaceInvader, Fortknox0, Rookinella ,lawrence Monk and canute..
      Was a good start to a fun day..There is so much history so here is a samll snippet of what is written
      HMS FORWARD maintained a comprehensive maritime surveillance of everything that moved on, under or over the English Channel from Dungeness to Selsey Bill. Ten coastal radar stations between Fairlight and Bognor Regis reported directly to HMS FORWARD. All information was filtered and plotted and also relayed by teleprinter to similar plots at Dover and Portsmouth.
      HMS FORWARD was heavily involved in the saga of the German battle cruisers Scharnhorst, Gneiseneau and Prinz Eugen on 11 February 1942, the Dieppe Raid of 19 August 1942, D-Day, and nightly MTB harassment raids and commando 'snoops' on the occupied French coast. Air/sea rescue was also coordinated from here.
      Like i say just a small bit of info google will produce much more if you are that interested...
      Quick planage!













      Great start to a day
      Ilove this type of structure

      Brief bit of history copied from the net...
      South Flank Casemates, Dover: During a new fear of invasion from Napoleon III two new dry moats where added to the existing citadel defences. The northern and the southern moat both had their own casemates built. Between these there was also a defensive caponier built, but sadly this was filled in during the 1960's by the Dover Corporation and they gradually destroyed many parts of the Western Heights.
      The southern casemates are a lot larger than the northern casemates, with eight separate rooms whereas the northern casemates only had six.
      The explore was a spur of the moment thing as i couldnt stand another day staring at the pc..SilverRainbow txt me to say he was free so we headed over to this spot.I first came here about a year and a half ago and only managed the south casemates as the north can only be reached via a crawl through some small chalk tunnels and a squeeze through the Pipe..going in was fine but knowing how tight it was made me a little edgy when wedged in the pipe..Eh have covered the access with anti climb paint as well as trying to seal it all up...
      On with some pics which i have tried not to go mad with ..
      South to start with..im sure you can tell which is the North ias theres no spray pain and crap














      Smashing day shame about that awful sunshine stuff
