I love this place, Explored it back in 2010 and when I heard it was open again I had to go back, Bit of History for those of you that dont know;

Crete Road / Silver Springs Reservoir, Construction work was completed on July 1866, It was alleged to have supplied the Silver Springs Soft Drinks Company with water although some other History that I have read seems to contradict this, There are two tanks, Each approx 88ft long and lined with cement, They are Interconnected by arch ways, So so Pics ;)

Left Hand Side



Right Hand Side



Overflow Pipe and Rungs down in to the Right Chamber from Overhead



Bit of Arty





And Finally



Thanks for taking the time to check out my Pics (y)
