    Default Cornwall Visit (Photo Heavy)


    First off i am not going to make threads for all of the different places as i would be here all day. Instead i will give a site description and some images of most.

    the first place we visited was a tank with pump houses and other workings. unfortunately the yobs seem to have beaten us to this and have burnt, and coated the place in graffiti.

    Next we visited a couple of old WW2 tunnels supposedly unfinished and were there to hold torpedoes. these were both well hidden and if my friend didn't already know where they were we would have never found them.
    One had a locked gate in place so made it impossible to enter.

    We then went to a old underground fuel tank where we went partially inside. the hole in front of the hatch is supposedly 3 times as deep as the place that its in, fall in and you will never get back out.

    after this we visited many battery's, i wont go into much of a description about these however they are quite risky to get to, some have large walls that you need to climb to get to, much like Edwardian forts. others have bees nests and are simply fenced off. The only thing that did stop us on one was the grate over the entrance. We braved the bees and the climbing and was well worth it.

    Yes that's a rabbit, I've blown away enough of them to know what they look like unwrapped. ;-)
