    Default Fuel Store, SE Cornwall


    Following a pretty crap week off work, and a mega hectic weekend, we just thought we may take advantage of BST and to a little reccy and chase up a mixed bag of information.....



    although i cant say where this is exactly, its near a well known defensive location in SE cornwall,

    we found a Battery Observation Post (BOP) nearby and also this underground paraffin and diesel store, the tanks have reference to 1932, but closer inspection reveils 1915 written in one or two places...















    enjoy!

    Ohhhhhhhh! I love this! Is there anything left on the surface, or is it just a hole down? Incidentally, do you have a photograph of the entrance? It looks a bit weird with all that light coming in - as though you could just fall down. Is it a hatch or just a gaping hole?

    Awesome.

    Those drums look unreal and quite menacing in that light.

    Great find. :)

    These pictures make it look far larger than it actually was, and lighter!
