Manchester resident here! I've been exploring since 2005 and hope to start up again soon! Most of mine were solo but a few 'Occurrences' made me aim for more group stuff! I'm looking to travel further afield too. What sort of places do you like best?
Hi Bignick....I do explores on my own, but some sites need at least two...My recent targets have been air raid shelters , building a portfolio of WW2 sites...but anything that has potential..and would consider other locations.

I believe that Dodge hill may be open right now!

That's great! My car is currently in the garage but when it's sorted I will definitely be starting up again! I have my eye on a place and hope to hit that first.

Ah last time I went was when it was secured with concrete and a fairly hefty steel plate and they seemed to be doing a lot of work in the park and surrounding areas. I just assumed they'd have back filled the entire thing by now. Any idea about if brinksways open.... So many failed attempts and only one solid lead at the moment.

Hi Specter, Brinksway, has been blocked up for some time now. Last time I checked Google Earth, I could see loads of building work around what was the main location of the Brinksway shelters[ July 2020] It also appears that the shelters were demolished. I would give Dodge Hill a visit, the entrance is roughly 1meter in diameter..bit of a squeeze, but doable....

Done dodge to death, is the Alice in wonderland outfit still in one of the corridors? Never got a chance with brinksway pure hope alone was keeping me going :ROFLMAO: I know of the work you speak of, an old factory was demolished but the entrance I've heard speak of is in the opposite direction
