    Default Coulsdon Deep Shelter


    Well I was down Surrey for bh weekend on a brilliant few days mountain biking (You guys have some great natural trails btw) & for some reason the guys didn't want to stay to play on the Monday so I was left alone for a days exploring!

    Thanks to Gromr for the heads up here, I spent a good hour or so wandering around on a solo explore & thoroughly enjoyed it. Many of my friends couldn't believe that I had done this alone, but believe me it was nothing compared to the immense thunder storm on Sun night that I spent alone in a tent, glued to my air bed like it was my last chance of survival in an ocean, I don't think I have ever been so grateful for a small piece of rubber :-)

    Anyway the history here is nothing new, I believe this was built during the latter half of the war & was then used by various company's due to its ambient temperature. The particularly hot day I went in left me gasping in the humid air when I came out that's for sure!

    Anyway on with the pics, hope u enjoy/

    Nice explore, still haven't seen this yet but it's on my to do list :)

    Glad you enjoy'd your stay in Surrey and you're right, there are some great cycling spots around - Richmond in particular. There are some ridiculous downhill rides around there that will put hairs on your chest.

    We rode from Dorking, over Leith Hill then Hurt wood near Peaslake. Iv rode a lot of places in the UK & yes some are "better" but everywhere is different & this far exceeded my expectations!

    Love that chair shot!

    Wish I had the fitness to do all that cycling...just pulling the bike out from underneath all the crap in the shed wears me out!
