    Default Urban Exploring - arl farts style.......

    Having done a few little explores including the Seaman's Orphanage, Vulcan studios, Eldon Grove, Everton Library, Ogdens tobacco factory, Bridgewater Street warehouses, The large objects museum and the White Star building, (some photos to follow in the future) it was up to Elm Terrace for our next one. Careful where we walked as it looked like nobody had for quite some time and the floors was a bit fragile, it was a bit like going back to when I was a teenager which didn't have me remembering as far back as my co-explorers.

    Seeing this takes me back to the 60's / 70's when there were plenty of old houses to explore, we called bombdies !

    Great pics Ged.

    Mart, it was great, you should have been there.

    Kevsy. me and a couple of mates did the Waterloo Tunnel c1979 but not primarily voluntarily. I'll try to find the thread from way back but basically some gypsies down by Pall Mall who had caravans around near the entrance legged it after us and we ran into the tunnel which could have been the worse thing we couldv'e done but it turned out alright in the end and eventually our eyesight adjusted to the dark. We could see we were going uphill as the tunnel entrance we'd left far behind was now only a sliver of light.

    We passed the mattresses, bike frames, prams and a host of other discarded items at the Byrom st cutting and noticed Fontenoy Gardens as we looked up. Going further on and we came to the ventilation shaft at Norton street - still there behind the coach terminus. A great day in the end.

    And then funnily enough talking about the cuttings. After Elm Terrace we explored around the University and were able to take a gander into the cutting on the Lime st to Edge Hill line.
