This was a place we had wanted to visit for a long time so when it got mentioned in memory of DHL that a group of people would be getting together up here i jumped at the chance..

So myself UrbanGinger SpaceInvader met up with PaulPowers and headed in ,then met way too many people to name if i could remember who everyone was..

Nice to meet up with old and new faces..RIP dave

Thanks guys,yeah its a pig to light even with my big torc the passages are so vast doing a double tunnel shot with wideangle was impossible..one torch throws a wide beam and lights it well but even with another torch on spot setting it didnt reach the end..And Shush was a 24 hour mad visit planned to sleep there but ended up home 24 hours after i got up to go here

Seriously, I've been there about 8 or 9 times and I still have not seen it all, it's physically impossible to do I think.

Nice pics both, I arrived very late to the party but still had a good time. Was a good evening, but I didn't bother taking my camera with me to Middleton so no pics from me.
