Right putting the past few days events behind me myself and Unclebulgaria who unfortunately left his battery behind decided to visit both upper and lower oil mills..now I know there is in the lower so i was told a Victorian oil/fuel tank a large one as for digging for hours ignoring all previous posts for info ive decided to opt for a quote !

Quote :
The Oil Mill Caves are easily visible from the road as they are situated directly behind a petrol station. They consist of a large U-shaped tunnel that has entrances at either end of the cliff.
These tunnels have served many different purposes over time, undoubtedly as air raid shelters during both World Wars and for storage. Today the lower tunnels are still in use for storage and workshop space, whereas the upper level has not been used for some considerable time.
Most of the tunnel is lined with concrete. The major problem with this tunnel is that it is saturated with water. Several years ago a huge fire in the lower tunnels left the walls greatly weakened. They are now very unstable

Right didn’t take a huge amount of pics or climb the many half broken walls in the lower as a revisit when uncle b is fully laden with battery is to be done,but as i know much to some peoples annoyance ive done a report and look i didnt do it the second i got in! on with the pics

A map of the upper ,there is a map of the lower its just that seems to cover the other sections within the same area in the street(doe etc) these at one point i believe would all have been linked as the many breezeblock walls show in the lower and this i believe i also read somewhere



















And now for the few i got in the lower before we decided to call it a night













This next photo was just top the left as we came down the stairs..lots of walla lol

Anyway some good photos ther mate and somewhere ive been meaning to get back to for a long time now so may have to join on the return trip. I remember climbing over all those walls with Fortknox0 many years ago. If you look for every possible route round the place then its amazing what you can find Wink
