    Default Tunnel in Tavistock


    I got a text message from Mr B telling me my time had come. Knowing i had already lost my virginity i drew the conclution i was being taken for my first "real" explore. The smelly bastard wouldn't tell me where we were going just a list of things i needed and what time to be ready...........Oh the exitment.

    I also met Scotty and another bloke who was really nice but sadly i have forgotten his name

    Upon arriving at our target building and having a good ol look around we decided we couldn't get in and moved on to a big old dissused tunnel. I know nothing about the history of the tunnel only that its older than myself and used to have trains going through it.



    I'm new to this Urbexing lark but very keen to get stuck in. I'm also new to taking photo's short of rude ones on mobile phone of the woman After a breif explantion from scotty about things my camera does that i still dont fully understand i was taking my first darkness pictures.............

    Ther exit - the entrance looks much the same.Myfirst attempt at "painting"


    A bashed up drainage thing


    Some funky brown stuff oozing fromt he wall


    The best shot my camera got all night - Scotty took it - note little me in the darkeness



    Much thanks to the guys for giving me my first taste of thigns to come and there kind help and instruction on the technical side of things. I'm sure they can fill in some details about the place and provide some far better pictures ;)

    Interesting site, not listed on Disused tunnels database (http://www.forgottenrelics.co.uk/tunnels/database.html). I'm assuming it's just down from Shillamill Viaduct. Looks like a good explore, how far did you go?

    Nice one, Silverfox. :)
    Ooh, where's this Shillamill viaduct that the-grotto mentioned? Is it do-able? I'll have to have a look on google earth and check it out.
