Great Yarmouth, or more accurately just Yarmouth is a typically tacky seaside town with mile upon mile of the stereotypical kind of tat and tasteless amusement arcades you only find on the shorelines of England. The kind of establishments that have lightweight wooden chairs that only the elderly find comfortable. If you ever get the chance to visit, politely decline at all costs! We had the misfortune of accidentally finding ourselves at a lose end in the area, the terrible weather on that drab Sunday morning only added to the misery, but the Winter Gardens, by its very nature, provided a nice bit of shelter from the pouring rain and anorak-clad diehard candyfloss eaters... A relic from the heyday of the English beach holiday, it is one of the few remaining places along the seafront to retain any of the Victorian charm that (probably) once adorned the town. It's basically just a big conservatory, so don't get excited! It has a bit of ok-ish ironwork and that's about it. But, if you like wearing wigs, climbing on shit and getting inside stuff that you're not supposed to go in, then this place is lots of fun, a satisfying playground for those of us who, to quote Leicestershire Police, have "anti-social" tendencies.
Visited with @SpiderMonkey, Brewtal and a crazy lady named Jane!
I'm sure they are so proud to have this mess in such a prominent position on their seafront
Over the hoarding is even worse
Inside is a bit better, if you're a fan of lightweight wooden chairs that only the elderly find comfortable.
I bet the old dears loved this tropical island of seats. "Ohh look Dorris, let's sit under the palm trees. I've never been abroad"
It felt just like a real jungle
Surely not comfortable? They don't look old enough.
Beep Dop Bappabop (that's robot speak for "Hey there, let me cup your balls")
Of course there's a bistro!
Right, fuck this shit.... Fun time!
Not bad for 20p!
On that note it was time to find somewhere worth visiting... But even the KFC had lightweight wooden bloody chairs that only the elderly find comfortable.

As the title says
Thought of it when I found a load today of explores I did years ago.A quick commentry as to why would be good too.
I think this was my first trip to West Park. It had been started the night before in the neigthbouring park, progressed to dodging the PIRs and then the infamous MC hammer. Good times.
Right not much i can say about this tunnel it has some war time graphiti so im assuming it was used as a shelter or was used by ww2 personel .The tunnel it self is self has brick lined and unlined sections leading down the well,it goes up a fair way to what looks like a wooden cap at the top and the sound of generators can be heard,someone said they thought dumpy was above the shaft but we really dont know! right not many pics as it is just a tunnel leading to the well shaft!
Right starting from the well shaft itself and walking back to entrance heres the few pics i got,special thx to frosty for leaning over the shaft with my camera to get the pics and also for the cave spider shot!
And one of frostys spider..im calling him egor:)
Right after that i did a return trip to st margarets so frosty obs and knox could get up the rope where the beach level is even higher pretty soon you wont need to climb atall!
First report of the new year, and by gum was it worth it
I'm sure some of you will recall the lengths at which I attempted to persuade my fellow Nottingham lad BravoZeRo to join me for climbing this.
Not to be compared with the likes of that bloody show off Dsankt and his ridicules contribution regarding high stuff, this is a first for me...
On with the pics, its basically a bridge over a railway cutting thats currently undergoing restoration.
At teh bottom..
Me getting my climbing fix at last..
BravoZeRo touching the top of the arch
Nearly at the top
Well worth the wait was great fun, can't wait to go back in the day
