Why do you like the underground (in Cornwall/Devon)?


New member
Hey all! I'm a student doing a project on the quality, perception, and experience of underground spaces in Cornwall (and Devon). I'm am looking for regular urban explorers from Cornwall to chat with about why you like being underground. I've posted some questions below that I'd love to hear answers on! I'll write them below so you can copy/paste if you're keen Smile I'd also love to chat with people online, on the phone, or meet up in person -- all will be kept totally anonymous of course. Feel free to post on here or pm me to set up a time/way to talk further.

How long have you been exploring underground in Cornwall:
