    Drainage tunnel, Beziers - November 2014

    I visited Beziers in the south of France last week.

    Barnsdale Tunnel, Yorkshire, Mar14

    First explore en route to Sheffield. Also visited the Doctor’s House, and one other fail. Still, 2 out of 3 is good, and the site that defeated us will get a return visit in the future. First tunnel I’ve been able to take the DSLR down, and despite how dark it is in there...
