    Thanks peeps.. Yes we'll give it another go in the new year depending on what the water levels are like at the portal as i expect it to be well & truly cut off again when the rain season starts.. There's a load more pics with a youtube video on my blog here lifebuoy

    Here's what the side refuge looks like. It was only small and we didn't go in as the mud was a foot deep in there. Those eagle eyed might be able to see what looks like a suspicious angry frog waving his fist at us to go away I'm undecided about this although the shadowy figure appears to move on different pictures i've took. I have seen some wierd toad/frog like creatures in Queensbury tunnel before.. I put my hand on it getting a shot up the air shaft.. God i nearly s... myself when it moved

    Trick of the light? maybe not? i don't know but i'm glad i didn't notice it when we were down there. There was also suspicious looking paw prints in the mud as well... water drops or the real thing?

    Here's some we know are real we spotted in Queensbury tunnel near Bradford.. You can see the big one ok but there's a well hid baby one in there too! We could have a spot the toad competition! I feel a bit sorry for it now as i had the 5 mill candle torch in it's face.. Probably the only light it's ever seen.
