    GKN Tunnels, Birmingham - Jan 2014

    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

    Hi guys, as some of you might now I am a volunteer worker at Drakelow so I thought I would give you the information first along our volunteers press release. On a personal note I am absolutely gutted, there are so many good people who have given up a lot of their own time, money and resources...

    Bury Tunnels, Lancs

    A friend of mine used to work for Chicago Rock cafe (now the Art Picture House), on Market Street, Bury. He swears blind, that while he worked there, he went through a door behind the bar, which took him into a red brick, pitch black tunnel that led underground. He says it isn't the cellar or...

    Shorts Tunnels, Rochester - March 2013

    Been meaning to post this a while. Shorts tunnels will always be a bit special when I visit it, as it was pretty much the first place I explored and took photos of about 6 years ago. Hearing recently it was open again I couldn't resist a look and the chance to take some better photos of it. I'm...

    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...

    Great Britain Drakelow Tunnels, April 2013

    This was an organised trip, essentially we crashed in on Sub Brits day as organised for us by Tommo who then ended up not being able to make it himself. Visited with Frosty, Fortknox and a non member. This place has a massive history, it started life in WWII and was originally constructed as a...

    Durham Hill/Soldiers Home/Crouchers/Barwicks tunnels - Dover

    This complex of tunnels all run into one another, but are all owned and used by different people with the exception of the Durham Hill tunnel which is too unstable to be used for anything. Up until WWII some of the sets of caves/tunnels existed seperately, but during WWII they were linked up...

    D.O.E Tunnels 2/8/10

    Fire brigade plans of the 1970s name these 'D.O.E Tunnels', and they were at the time at the rear of the Dover Storage Company, in Limekiln Street. This area now forms a shipping company's yard. The tunnels themselves probably date back to the early 19th Century, but must have been worked over a...
