You will have to excuse the pictures, these were back before I had my DSLR and was on a bridge camera with a cheap CPL filter attachment!

The explore itself was pretty good, however there is going to be no chance getting inside any of the underground sections anytime soon... not unless someone pumps the flood water out. Good little explore none the less :D

Certainly has flooded since then, it's never going to look like that again! Though surely there is some kind of drainage for it somewhere, I didn't see any streams or anything nearby that could have burst their banks so it's got to be just rain water.

I think scuba gear may be more appropriate!

I was there a month or so ago, and the water had gone down slightly from this, and it was a lot clearer. Odd that it has flooded so quickly, at exactly the same time the refenced it…

I remember running around inside only a couple of years ago, it was bone dry. There’s even a Ford Fiesta in there!

The Staircase with the yellow handle in your 5th shot now has a cage welded over it too.

Fantastic shots tho thanks for sharing :)

Big ups to the Allan Williams turret! Nice pics! Went here a few months back, but should be returning with waders at some point in the future :D

Surely they haven't intentionally flooded it? Is a bit of a coincidence though...

I am half tempted to return with the DSLR if the water levels are dropping.

Hey urbanx, one word, canoe ;)
Needs to be done.
I'll check back on this place in a month, see if its any better.
I also think its intentional, which is a shame.
