Secret Hidden Tunnel Exploration Shanklin Isle of Wight (Derelict places UK) Secret Underground Cave

989 ratings | 225262 views
Derelict places uk: Abandoned tunnel exploration Isle of Wight, secret tunnel hidden in the woods on the outskirts of Shanklin. Date of Visit: 18-05-2016 The tunnel is surprisingly long at the end of the bricked section it leads into a cave opening. The cave section goes on for approx 30m and then unfortunately comes to a dead end. Its thought to be a borehole built by the Victorians. Just beneath this tunnel is another (unfortunately still sealed) which I have been told leads to a large underground well. There are pipes within this tunnel which look as though they feed through to the other tunnel below. I haven't edited down the footage to give a representation of just how long this is. The footage of the cave section is not particularly good, it was extremely difficult to film in this section and there was significant waterfall.. The tunnel had been sealed for quite sometime however fortunately I was tipped off that someone has very kindly ground the lock off. This is not likely to stay open for long, please be aware it is very wet and muddy inside with several hidden pits. ****UPDATE 24-05-16**** This has now been re-sealed :( I would not advise taking any gear in that is not weather sealed, you WILL get it wet and muddy, and mind out for the bats ;) Gear used: Sony a7s full frame mirrorless camera system. Lens used: Sony 16mm E mount with Fisheye adaptor. Gimbal shots shot with the Nebula 4000 Lite. Last shot made with Panasonic GH4 (as its weather sealed) Edited in Adobe Premier Pro CC 2015 Graded with VisionColor OSIRIS M31 Lut Music Created (by me) with FL Studio 9 using Absynth 5 plugins.

This tunnel looks like it was built as a service access to the drain, that clearly runs below the floor of the tunnel, several openings can be seen.

Nearly three quarters of the way in I began to get that strange claustrophobic feeling just thinking about having to go back the same way. That was a very long walk. Nice effects though.

Damn ... creepy sort of place, isn't it? Anyone know what it was for?

Something Victorian, the stained bricks, the dirtiness, there's no doubt. Although more than likely it has something to do with sewage and pipes for water ect.

This reminds me of the Cu Chi tunnels in Vietnam though that one was low you have to crawl. Since the Cu Chi tunnels are now a tourist attraction, they made exit points every 20 feet or so. I would probably not go very deep into something like this if there is no exit point every now and then.
Yeah no exit point here apart from the way in, when I went in I also had no idea how far along the collapsed section went, I'd though there may be an exit, and there wasn't... Luckily I managed to get out alright it really wasn't very smart to go in alone, they've welded the entrance shut now so at least no one will get hurt trying to crawl through.

I went in the thatched tea rooms in shanklin old village ... they have access to tunnels under the cottage (made of three cottages) it leads to the Manor House 700 yards away ... used for smuggling ... booty brought up to the chine to cottages and smuggled to the manor to avoid customs back in the day !!!
I'd heard rumours about tunnels running between one of the pubs and the chine but I wasn't aware of the tea gardens so thanks for sharing 👍... Might have to pop in for a cuppa and see if they'll let me in 😁

I thought at first this was a WW2 tunnel, made by some guys who lucked out and didn't have to go to the front, cause someone wanted this endless nothing bricked....
A second nearby tunnel linked to this has recently been opened, check out my video of it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=doRokxSYurc 😁

Abandoned Isle of Wight I noticed holes in the walls that seemed pretty evenly spaced and paired at shoulder level. Any idea what those are?
There isn't much information around online most of the history I've heard is word of mouth or people's theories.  The most credible theory (I think) is that they were are boreholes built by the Victorians and used either as a water source/storage or to feed into the local chine ensuring that did not dry up as it was a big tourist attraction back then.

Lucky they didn't come and re lock it whilst you were in there!!
drubber77 (1 year ago)
Jesus. Can you imagine....just hearing the door slam shut and locked...the terror! i bet you'd struggle to get a phone signal. Just goes to show, you should always tell someone you know where you're going if on your own. I am a photographer and often end up in far out random places with no phone signal on my own and think, if i slipped or somehow injured myself i'd probably die a slow miserable death. Anyway on a high note, the weathers been great today here in Derbyshire 😂
+drubber007 Absolutely! They came and locked it the following day, so it was lucky/stupid
brianartillery (1 year ago)
Is that mud underfoot, or excreta?
I think (hope) mud... Given the location, I think it's safe to assume mud, as I believe its original intended use was as a borehole.

Hes kind of right though, the old legends all say the ancient ones we called 'Gods' /fallen angels, had places underground they hung out in.     And Hell was originally Enki's south African deep Gold mines.   (underground, and very deep, the further down you go the hotter it is).   Apparently when present mining operations, for either gold or diamonds, run across these ancient shafts , they just seal them up and change their boring direction.   Would be interesting if some one or group could do some extensive investigations in to these ancient mines.

Luke Dorey (2 years ago)
Where abouts in Shanklin is this and is it still accessible??
NIGEL PASSMORE (2 years ago)
Is this Greatwood Copse ? Reason I'm asking is because there is a well in these woods marked on OS maps, anything to do with this ?
Its in the woods along Bonchurch road opposite the layby. Its fairly well hidden in there you'll want to follow the path around to the right to find it... Unfortunately not long after this video it was sealed back up, however I am not sure if thats still the case or not.
neil phillips (2 years ago)
Wicked filming, , quite a few years ago up Totland, the road collapsed and reviled a massive tunnel 4ft by 8ft , easy big enough for a man to walk through if not two, i was told it was a storm drain,.i don't believe that for an instance, it was to clean and dry down there ,it was probably 10ft down from road level and built out of quarry stone just a bit expensive and extravagant for a drain, i would like to find the entrance to it ,as you never know what could be down there, i.e. rooms, ...Thanks for sharing the film.
Thanks Neil :D
neil phillips (2 years ago)
Main road and entrance to Totland bowling club, you most probably need to hunt for a manholes in the area, , good luck with the hunt.
Really interesting Neil! I don't suppose you could tell me approximately where about in Totland this was? Sounds like something I would certainly want to go have an investigation of... Thanks for watching :D

From "Victorian Shanklin" by Alan Parker, Shanklin Rotary Club 1977; "The original water supply was from the Greatwood Headings at the bottom of Cowlease. In March 1865 the Board accepted the tender of Mr. Bemjamin Harris of Landport to carry out the water works. Further steps were constantly being taken to maintain and improve the water supply. These steps included the construction of a new storage reservoir at the water works in 1885. In 1893 four men, including the contractor, Mr.T. Parsons, and his son, lost their lives through being overcome by gas during boring operations at a new well in Greatwoods, and a relief fund for the bereaved families was established"

Take along your own heavy duty lock and put it through ONE of the hasps on the door. That will prevent the door from being closed or another padlock being used to lock the door. You'd also hear if anyone tried to cut your padlock off with a disc grinder and have time to get back to the door.

Isleofwight Dave You went in there alone?!?! Good God man!! Your brave. I won't even go in the kitchen with the light off!!
+Isleofwight Dave The though had crossed my mind that that might happen, but rather foolishly I went alone...  Thanks for watching :)

That is absolutely amazing. Any idea what the purpose for the tunnel/cave was? Any history at all on the place? Thank you for making this video, especially since you actually risked your life to go into the cave at the end, that is some considerable rockfall and with all that water seaping more could have fell literally at any time. You could have been crushed or the tunnel exit could have been blocked and easily trapped you inside. Hope you let somebody know where you were and to send help if you didn't return right away.

Do you mean the Layby on Cowleaze Hill, or the layby at the top of Cowleaze at the start of Bonchurch Road. I believe the wood is owned by Shanklin Estates (Shanklin Chine etc.).
Jamie Russell (2 years ago)
The tunnel below certainly does have a well :) I went there with my dad when I was real young.....maybe mid/late 80s? The water was crystal clear and you couldn't see the bottom but there was a ledge where you could walk around the well. Also the tunnel opened up to be much much wider than the one above it.
+SwgLekk Its thought to be a borehole built by the Victorians. Just beneath this tunnel is another (unfortunately still sealed) which I have been told leads to a large underground well. There are pipes within this tunnel which look as though they feed through to the other tunnel below. The cave was pretty sketchy, and the rock was certainly not stable! I had told several people where I was going and gave an approximate location as to where I was. Thank you for watching! :)
