This was stop 1 on our underground Wiltshire trip, with Browns Folly Mine making up numero 2. Visited with Bubblehead and God. God goes by a different name on here, I forget what it is.

There's an awesome website here on subbrit (http://www.subbrit.org.uk/sb-sites/s...h/index1.shtml) regarding the site and its' history, as I know the place has been documented many times.

Alot of the top side buildings and platforms appear to have been demolished, and it's utterly trashed inside. Partly because of illegal raves and gypsy's apparently, although I don't think they mixed.

The tunnel is LONG, and you don't realise the incline too much until you get to the end and look back. There's some great graffiti dating back to WW2, and although most sections of the conveyor have been destroyed a remarkable amount sits relatively untouched.

The photos;

It looks like the surface has been tidied up since I was last there. It's fascinating isn't it. Some of those rollers for the conveyors spin just as well now as they did 60 years ago.
