Sorry, really can't encourage or support responding to this.

The aim of the forum is partly to reminisce, but as responsible (usually!) Old Blues we try to support the school and the staff, and wouldn't want to be seen to be actively undermining rules.

Whilst it may not have asbestos, there are still dangers down there, especially if alone.
(Worth watching "127 Hours" film.....!)

Oooh ! You cynic, Julian.

Having wandered the dark dank total lengths of the 'Tube' in my time, I NEVER EVER got my leg caught between two rocks !

I never saw a 'spook', HOWEVER, I did once...........

I did once....................................

'ARGHHHHHHH !'

Well rules are rules I guess! Twas the same whilst I was there, it was out of bounds - we all chose to abide by the rules, break them, and/or try to get them changed. "You make your choice, you take your chances....."

There are official tours on Old Blues Day - maybe you could get onto one of those? Or better, perhaps request official tours be run for pupils - perhaps in return for a donation to Children in Need, or some volunteering, or some other charity?

Just a thought...

Just for the record, thanks to a PM, I have discovered that Cazzro and I are both Dorkinians and live about a mile apart.

We are conversing by PM and I look forward to meeting him during a weekend break on holiday period, probably at the hallowed ground known as Meadowbank Stadium !

Why travel all the way to a stadium in Edinburgh when you both live in Dorking? :wink:

There are official tours on Old Blues Day
Indeed Julian, there are. My girlfriend and I had a very enjoyable - and lengthy - guided tour of the Tube on Old Blues Day 2011. It was great fun, and we learnt a lot.

The tour took us from Peele to Leigh Hunt, with a little diversion up one of the cloisters/chapel tunnel. It was a fascinating journey and brought back many memories. And, unlike certain contributors to this post, walking - or rather crouching - along the sub-tunnel to the cloisters/chapel was something I had never done during my entire time at CH.

Highly recommended. Just watch out for the asbestos...
