Right a visit has been long over due..crete road the facts as is written are these

Construction work on the reservoir was completed on 2nd July 1866 and was used to supply a nearby soft drink factory in Folkestone with water. There are two tanks, each approximately 88ft long and lined with cement.

The second thing we came Across behind a big steel door in near by woodlands ive done a quick scour of the net and i nelieve its called the hills reservoir..if im wrong please feel free to inform me..i believe its about 600 yeards long and i think was built around 1953 and atthe far end is valves and various pipes etc and a ladder leading into a room ,with a locked gate at top of ladder so thats as far as we got..

crete rd it self i didnt faff around with effects or playing around with lighting i was cold wet and glad i didnt slip 14 odd foot of the metal beam to my cameras death so i got some pics..
Visited with uncle B and nite walker

Right crete road first whic ive been told and now realise would have been so much nicer during the day to find and explore Smile













Not a huge amount of pics you can get from inside this place unless you have the time to play with some different coloured lighting or maybe play with some things that burn which funnily enuff i didnt bring...

Right onto the Hills reservoir or at least the tunnel leading up to the pumping room which was locked tight!!















Right not the most epic of adventures,but crete road has been in mind for a while and the second part behind the big door was a bonus..cheers to obs for the nod about said door..

Cheers mate. Have you done Grain Battery yet? There's a bit there where you cross from the Martello tower to the accommodation block - if you're cool you walk across a concrete plank - er ... I crawled Embarassed
