Since visiting the legendary Manchester Victoria Arches last year we have been keen to get back in and have another look around. Ben has been in before so set off for a night out in Manchester of a different kind!
Visited by: Nic, Shorty, Ben
This time we decided to take an alternative entrance point as non of us fancied dying in the way in which Lee manages to avoid in all situations. Walking around Manchester with ropes and harnesses always draws a few strange looks but we managed to get in without any hassle.
This was also the first real time out exploring without Ojay and it was good to do something for ourselves and also for me to play around with my camera on my own, play around, make a few mistakes but learn a lot too.
Our alternative entrance plan ended up with us having to boulder our way back out of the women’s toilets and as always the walk back across the bridge is pigeon alley… shorty got a wing slap to the face!
Another interesting occurrence down here this time was of the super natural variety and left us a little freaked out!! I have never really been one for believing in ghosts but upon taking a photo of the main area we saw what appeared to be a figure stood at the top of the stairs on the camera screen. I have honestly never seen anything like that before and in a place like this your imagination can run wild. After getting home the figure was gone from the images, but I really can’t say for certain what happened, but I do know there are human remains from the 1800s down here though…
