Swithland Reservoir - December 2016

- Posted in Exploring by - Comments
This place has been done plenty of times, so not adding anything new here. We were in the vicinity checking some other stuff out and thought why not pop in to have a look. I'd heard tales of vast quantities of massive spiders, but only saw one that was alive, bit of a relief. Swithland reservoir, Read more

Tittesworth Reservoir Overflow, Staffordshire - July 2018

- Posted in Exploring by - Comments
Visited with Humpa whilst out and about in the local area, checking out various new bits as well as some of the old classic places just to see how they were doing (generally quite badly!), also involved a stop off at the excellent BeerDock in Leek, be sure to check that out if you're ever in the Read more

A Bit of the Hockley Brook, Birmingham - January 2018

- Posted in Exploring by - Comments
After having a bit of a failure to start our day we headed down to Birmingham to have a look at a few bits and pieces. It appears that there was far more to see than we actually did see, but it was nice nonetheless, and now I just have an excuse to go back some time. Standard Wikipedia information Read more

This large public air raid shelter is one of four which were proposed and built by Surrey Council at the beginning of WW2, the others being at Epsom Downs, Ashley Road in Epsom and Kenley. The plan was to build 3 parallel longitudinal tunnels into the chalk hillside with 4 parallel lateral tunnels Read more

GKN Shadow Factory, Smethwick - July 2013

- Posted in Exploring by - Comments
Dweeb had mentioned this one to us, so we headed back down to Birmingham to check it out. It was a fun explore, lots to see and plenty of sticky oil seeping out of every nook and cranny. We spent a bit of time also looking around the remains above ground where there are a few nice bits and pieces Read more

Longbridge Shadow Factory Tunnels - July 2013

The East Works was built upon a 15 acre site bounded by Groveley Lane and Lowhill Lane from 1936 onwards, as part of the Government's Shadow Factory Scheme which Lord Austin was in charge of from its inception that year. It included an under-ground factory built under Groveley Lane where aircraft Read more

Bypass, Bradford - March 2013

- Posted in Exploring by - Comments
Big thanks to Ojay and Squizz for showing us around, really appreciated. This was for LE's birthday explore, so of course there was a cake and a meal out at Maccies. A really enjoyable explore, something I'd been wanting to do for ages now. Hopefully go back up to Bradford to see more some time Read more

Underground Reservoir, Stone - March 2013

- Posted in Exploring by - Comments
No info really on this one, it's a seemingly disused underground reservoir, from the water marks on the walls doesn't look like it's been full for a long time. Not much to see but it has a nice ball float valve. It possibly could of had something to do with the nearby Meaford Power Station, one of Read more

Stoke Mega - March 2013

- Posted in Exploring by - Comments
It'd been quite some time since we'd had the waders out so we were both itching to get out and decided to head down to Mega. BAJ had been before but this was the first time I'd gotten around to doing it. Not the most interesting of drains - all pretty modern, nice little stone bit at the start that Read more

Metropolitan Water Board Company Mains Tunnel, Richmond - January 2013

- Posted in Exploring by - Comments
If you walk further along the side of the Thames from Isleworth, towards St Margarets along the Richmond Road, turn left opposite the Ailsa Tavern into St Margarets Drive, then hence into Ranelagh Drive, pass under Twickenham Bridge and then stop and look right into a small area of allotments you Read more
