Did you know that there could be a cable tunnel running for miles underneath your street? You probably didn't. Here's one in London which I wasn't supposed to be in.

Makes a bizarre noise.
Holy crap that is awesome.
That's awesome man, love the photos as well! How did you get into it?
pretty awesome, how did you get down there?
you should cut one and see what happens

So how do you do that? Just open a manhole and climb down? Do you have a closed route or just plan where to come above ground again? How do you make sure not to get lost?
This one is accessed at ground level through a gate, then interestingly you climb up some stairs to get into the tunnel. On the way back you just follow the tunnel and you end up where you came from. Another tunnel I did later in the day you do have to go through a manhole.
The first ones remind me of HL2. Looks awesome.
Are they honestly letting these lights on 24/7 ?
I'm surprised they're so publicly accessible.

I know you get asked this a million times, but what camera/lens do you use?
That's awesome, weird to think people walk above it without realising everyday.
Bengley, still being awesome as usual. How goes your urbex (is that right?) travels?
Woah. Thanks for posting these, I suddenly feel super-inspired to try recreating this in Half-Life 2
I've always wanted to do UrbEx, but there are no places to do it around here.
Do you have a video at all? I want to hear this bizarre noise
I love how high-quality your pictures are and how fast they load. Looks great as always.
be careful next time or you might uncover a secret society that range all the way back to Queen Elizabeth I
Reminds of Agroprom and the labs from S.T.A.L.K.E.R. :v:
Reminds me of a fucking tunnel with wires jesus christ you guys.
Yes, that is a cable tunnel.
I dare you to cut some of the really small ones.
This the one that goes to Battersea?
Nope, it's in the city.
God , sonny, I think we need to reinvent London.
[QUOTE=Bengley;34475958]Nope, it's in the city.[/QUOTE] top darts nice shots too
Thats awesome. Would you be able to tell me how you managed to compose these pictures? I'm a new photographer and just bought a new Canon T2i as well actually! I would love to know how you managed to get a shots like these (ether the camera settings or if you did any post production). All of mine are sort of plain and never manage to cross the professional threshold no matter what I take a picture of.
That's sweet. What do you reckon is the likelihood of getting caught?
