I had seen a couple of pics from the tunnels under the Mesnes park in Wigan and a newspaper article that they were due to be capped off, I was passing by so decided for a dinner time explore to see if I could locate them.

With nothing more than the name of the park and a smart phone I pulled up to see what I could find

10 minutes and I was climbing down the ladder and into the darkness, isn't technology brilliant

Sadly I snapped my tripod a few days ago so these are handheld

Them shots look mighty fine to me, and good on that lad for trying, even though in vain, to save the place

Good to see you and think it a shame they just cap these places up or worse back fill them

Looks very much like a service tunnel, wouldn't have liked being down there in the war :(

Nice pics though chuck

I'd be fooled into thinking they were taken off a tri-pod. Great set.
