No the roc post was close to westhoughton. we try d that first because it was virtually on our door step, and we knew we could get in to the other with ease. so have you been into the one we try d.

im looking forward to you showing us round bolton as that's right on our door step as well, should be good laugh.

Unless that's a retorical question There's rumours of steam trains being kept down here in the event of an EMP weapon taking out everything with an electonic circuit they'd have steam engines for transportin troops and whatever around the country. The Strategic Steam Reserve!!

It may just be coincidence but within 10 mins of me moochin around the perimeter fence security had turned up. I've mentioned it in the other thread on this place hat you've posted in.

Good report, some nice shots and thanks for sharing.

Great pics, I like it. very nicely lit up!

I remember hearing about the SSR years ago, sheds/depos dotted around the main lines that would transport troops and supplies on the off chance that the cold war ever broke into war!
Thought it was just some silly tail that steam enthusiasts believed! lol!


Send three and fourpence we're going to a dance

cheers! yeah ive heard the same rumours as well but it would be good to get inside and have a look to see whats true. we've bin over most of the tops of these tunnels over the different visits hoping to try and find some sort of hatch, just wish full thinking.

oh dont know then ive heard other people say that the security is heavy around this place, some one i once knew said that her mates went up inside years ago and security turned up and took them of the site.

Ive been searching in this area for the last couple of years''
Have you noticed the two pools on your right with a branch line behind it? once unloaded and in the compound there is no escape as the fencing is angled to keep you in.

The germans commited many atrocitys to many people' I rather think that we were also dealing with these monsters by means electricution once they have been herded into the pools!
Why else would there be mega voltage to that side of the camp?
If anyone wants to search more and you see an mp lookin vehicle, hang arround and i' or the dog will appear! no doggers or perverts please as i will not be happy...
