    Default Coulsdon deep level shelter..Surrey


    So this was my second deep level shelter I have been too now.visited with man gone wrong at the end of a day down south,this shelter was considerably smaller than the last one we had been too.but had more stuff in it.the tunnels had a lot of graffiti in it and signs of raves being held in here were visible too.the shelter was one of built by surrey council for the war.after the war it was purchased by an optical lens specialist who used the tunnels as it produced the right atmosphere.







































    I like to go where others fear to tread.

    Nicely done mate. I still need to see the rest of this. Went with the ex on my birthday last year but the local chav squad has been setting off fireworks in there so we decided to leave pretty soon after we arrived as it was not fun breathing it in! Did man gone wrong get scared at all? :D

    More to the point, how did they get the tractor wheels in there?
    IKS Exploration did a few vids on this place, shame about all the spray paint.

    That's a nice collection of photos. You have a very good light with you as it must have been pitch black down there.

    Great pics. What a shame about the graff but I suppose that's always going to be part of the way these decaying places change.
