I have wanted to see this place for over 2 years, so was great to see it at last. I like photographing Victorian brickwork, which upstood years of use and then years of neglect, and is still in good condition. Many thanks to Hughie for this one.

Very little history on the place but this is the underground Victorian reservoir of the Grantham Water Company which was formed in 1855.

Explored with the most excellent company of Mikeymutt, Rubex & JanovitchGagovan.

Hello,
Many thanks for your interest.

I will be honest with you, I've had few requests, All from New, Un-established members asking for various reasons including ghost hunting, wanting to make a video there, art courses, or enquiries if the land around it was for sale (!).

You sound genuine, but the reason I don't want to give out access is as you could be the police / security / landowner / pikey / arsonist / vandal etc.

Ive been back to sites before which I have posted on this and other forums to find they have been looted, or trashed.

All I can suggest is you get involved with the community, and post up a few explores yourself. It’s a great site, and you'll be hooked soon.
