Afternoon everyone we had a long day exploring yesterday and visited 4 places so im acheing like crazy today, anyway in between explores i popped back down into the z rocket for another look, still like it down their although its a small explore but nice all the same :).

the crazy pidgeons are still there waiting to fly into your head when you least expect it but it keeps you on your toes haha.

just a few pictures incase everyone hasnt seen them a thousand times.

a little history on the place:

The Site is located under the 5.5 gun battery constructed during world war 2, this battery no longer remains having been demolished in the 1970s. The Deep shelter however still remains. This gunsite mounted 4 x 5.5" guns and was manned by 411 Battery. Tunnelled accommodation was provided at the rear of the Battery, and an extra chamber between the two parallel tunnels was later added by 171 Tunnelling Coy. as additional space for the medical services.there are hazards such as unsupported sections of the tunnels as well as a chute that opens directly into the face of the cliff.













thanks for looking

alan.

I would advise not to go in z-rocket due to cilff falls near it have made it very unstable, as when I went past it in a powerboat (another hobbie of mine) it looked very unstable, and there is only one entrance and if that collapses your stuck in there + you have to go over the cliff fence to access the entrance, shame though it's a great place asthe tunnels go on forever.

could have told us that before we went in ;-)

same as any deep shelter ive been in though i suppose and alot of other places ive explored, one way in and the same way out, i think if i always thought about the worst case scenario i would give up exploring and sit at home wrapped up in bubble wrap. same as motor racing that i used to do, only one outcome if i flip at high speed but that thrill is the reason why we do it.

hopefully it doesn't deteriorate in there though as it would be a shame as its a nice one.

Looks a decent explore, added some spaces to your pics to make it easier to look through.

Thanks for sharing

ok thank you, amazing how much resizing the pics so there not massive reduces the quality, oh well good enough :).

only a smallish deep shelter but nice and clean suprisingly.

Thats a nice set Alan and cool work (y)

Risk assessments are so very important Azz I so very agree,Minimize as best you can and brake them down.

Then in the lap of the gods (y)

Gotta love this game :D
