Upper Hale Underground Reservoirs, Aldershot Garrison, Surrey – April 2017

Continuing on from Flexlands, Southside, my friend and myself visited this site. I don’t really do underground, but I quite liked it here and I think it lit up quite well.

History
These Reservoirs are South of an area known as “Caesars Camp”; which was then; a major water catchment area for Aldershot Camp which had its own water supply from Aldershot Town

There are a number of uncovered reservoir's in this area; and until recent years a water tower and pump house across the road.


The Explore
Just a quick explore in here really. Quite refreshingly cool as expected under there; though incredibly slippery which is understandable of course!

Got a few shots here; and I for one quite liked it under there. The ladder we used was incredibly sturdy, but I have been told that other ladders here are not!!!

We left after about 20 minutes to check the rest of our list for the day.

Not seen this one pop up for a while. Lovely lighting in there.

Back in the late 80's as kids we broke into there. Took turns climbing down the ladder whilst a friend would close the hatch to see who would scream like a girl.

The curved concrete roofs remind me of photos I've seen of another covered/underground water reservoir, but with brick archwork and from a much earlier era. Possibly somewhere in Italy.
