Small entrance ... Further above it maybe another tunnel entrance or cave, it slanted downwards ... Yer, the mud has filled it up so high that one can hardly crawled in without being covered with dirt all around.

 

Tunnel of unknown nature [????- ]

Numerous of litters found inside, most of them were plastic flower pots of different sizes.

Didn't venture deep inside because of those layers of litters.

It's the first time I came across a tunnel entrance with such a facet. It's a pity that it's a bit flooded further inside the tunnel. It's at alt.200, and it's said to be having another exit at the same level, of which I also visited, but that one didn't have that same facet, it's filled with rubbish instead.

I am not sure of its nature, just assumed that it's an ARP.

Air Raid Shelter on Waterloo Road [????- ]

I heard about this some time back, and finally had a chance to take a look last Friday.

If you start off on on the north side of Argyle Street, by the old CLP Headquarters, walk with the hill on your left and you'll follow the curve of the path around into Waterloo Road.

There's a big concrete retaining wall on your left, and if you keep a look out you'll spot this metal sign fixed to it:
