    Default cremyll fuel depot


    This was a fairly quick visit mainly so myself and mk1kabab could meet up with badoosh and theterrorwheel.
    Oh and not sure what the date tag is about I’ve pushed something somewhere, I should really learn how to work my camera:p


    The site



    Roof


    Ladder to the roof minus the ladder

    Pipes


    Last time I visited the site this building was almost completely covered


    The floor was soaked with oil and bloody slippery stuff


    Ladder behind a ladder?



    Pump house


    This building was completely covered last time and I didn’t even know it was there!




    Oil seepage




    I thought I had discovered a secret room until mk1 opened the door:p



    Badoosh found this just before we left don’t know what it is but badoosh reckons it’s just a manhole cover.
    there was also a hatch on the side of the tank which didn’t come through into the tank but couldn’t see what was in it because it was about 12ft up, forgot to take a picture.
    Well that’s the depot on the quick was good to meet fellow explorers.

    On our way home we decided mk1 and myself decided to visit a tunnel kernow told us about.




    Stalactites and stalagmites



    Weird mould stuff


    Worst part of exploring!

    yeah it is a very weird tunnel, and very dark! Gonna visit the other 1 soon! does anyone know what it was used for? those walls that are inside it seem original, but I don't know why they would be there, unless they were some sort of baffle?

    The little door was slightly open but when I went back in to look if it went through but it didn’t seem to mk1 wouldn’t let me on his shoulders either :p
    Yeah was strange in there and very cold, couldn’t work out if the "walls" are original or not pipes went through them but then the entrance had hinges on it
    Next time your over pm would be nice to meet you.

    My theory on these tanks, & it is only a theory, is that there were smaller tanks within the these, maybe the smaller door hatches were for some kind of air vents?

    could well be, but that tank we were in definitely sounded hollow under that steel floor? there must be some info on this site somewhere, old mod records or something?

    I agree! Further research needed to answer some questions. :)
