    Default Rain, More Rain, and Tunnels - GKN Revisit Dec '12


    One last explore for me this year, and my mate TBM who is back from university for the Christmas break wanted to see somewhere big so I suggested here, as I absolutely love this place.

    A pity we chose possibly one of the rainiest days of the year to go explore a load of tunnels...but that in itself was incredible, water literally pouring in through the various vent holes in the roof in places so the sounds were incredible. Add to this that now all the manhole covers have been removed, the place is even more dangerous as while most were just general drainage holes underneath a couple went right down into the sewer system, floaters and everything bobbing about!



    A good explore was had despite the monsoon-like conditions, followed up by a brief fail at the Hockley Palladium afterwards.





























    A few more here if anyone is interested http://www.flickr.com/photos/mookie4...7632377667028/

    I also shot a few video clips...don't know how to get the thing to embed

    Why go through a door when there's a perfectly good window?

    Particularly like the old document packages with the dates on them

    You deserve a medal for exploring on a day like that
