UK Kadunk Kadunk, Leicester - May '16

Recommended Posts

Yes another recent explore from dumb and dumber

After crawling through Trinity North, we wanted more. Pom mentioned to me previously that there was a brick drain in Leicester, I didn't believe him. So after me making a massive fail in MC Donalds, in which I ordered two of the same burgers which were foul, we headed here. To be fair, pom had mentioned this was long and stoopy, but after crawling through a 3ft pipe, I was up for anything. After an interesting access, we were in, along with the occasional 'Kadunk Kadunk' sound echoing through. Although the stoopy wasn't that low, the lack of chambers you can stand up in, and the shear length in between hits you back and legs. This is a nice little one, good variety RCP, fibre-glass, brick and anything else Leicester City council could get their hands on. I suspect this was originally a victorian sewer, later changed to storm drainage when Leicester's two trunk sewers were constructed.
Exiting topped it all off with pom slipping and almost cutting me in two in the process. I had bruised ribs in the morning, which was difficult to explain to the boss when I struggled with lifting the next day.


























Cheers for Looking

Fair play getting down these, stooping isn't my cuppa tea tbh. The guy in the last shot needs to get some wadorz!

      Built in 1871 but had been refurbished at some point.
       Now, I don't do heights.. So I was chuffed to see my mate practically run towards it in excitement and go first. It was pretty high and the grated floor was not ideal if you wanted to avoid looking down. 
      The tower probably stands around 40-50 ft but exact measurements are unknown at this point.
      Apart from the odd clanging of metal under our footsteps and how wobbly it was, it was a good first climb like this for me!
      Got some snaps as usual, enjoy!

      Hi all. We have invested in a new camera and went out during the night to see how well it can handle the low light images. The result was actually rather impressive! So please enjoy the snaps we managed to get.
      It isn't a new area, but it is a good place to get some shots. Feel free to let us know which pic you guys like!

      Keep in touch to see some new places real soon. Cheers,

      Falcon house. It's been in Swindon since the early days of this towns birth and has been sat empty and abandoned for 16 years.  
      It was said to be the very first headquarters for the well known company zurich, an insurance company, but was promptly moved to a more practical and efficient property.
      The old office block is situated in Swindon town centre on top of a car park right near the entrance to town, which is an eye sore to some but a worthy explore for us. 
      There was nothing much left, only old phones and some really old school computer stuff. 
      It was the view at the end of the video that made it all worth it, being the second highest point in the town aside from the john murray building.  What a view! 
      So please enjoy this video by my good friend and make sure to check out the channel! Have fun out there,

      Snowdown was the deepest colliery in Kent reaching well over 3,000 ft (915 metres). It was also the hottest and most humid pit in Kent and was given the name 'Dante's Inferno' by the miners. Regarded by many as the worst pit to work at in Britain, most Snowdown miners worked naked because clothes became too uncomfortable. The miners could consume around 24 pints (14 lires) of water in an 8-hour shift. There were frequent cases of heat stroke.

      Snowdown closed in 1987
