colerne34.jpg (12547 bytes)

CDCN side view - air generator and air cleaning equipmnet probably resides here on the surface. Colern airbase, the "disused" airbase that looks pretty well used to me, its own fully occupied barracks and Sattelite disks for the Skynet Sattelites which are for British Military communications and possibly UFO interception. The Colerne Runways are kept better than many large airports and the hangwers always paid to be maintaned. Disused, I dont think so... kept ready for quick landings of important aircraft perhaps?

Quarrymans Arms is a great place to get food before going on a explore in the Quarries. They also have underground maps for sale so you "might" not get lost.

The types of gear you need to go underground, hard hat esential its so easy to bang your head and you could knock yourself out without one. Water and many torches of long life variety. It canoften be 10 hours walking underground. A compass is essential to find your bearings. Helmet torches are handy to see where you are going with your hands free.
