Worst Cave Conservation Photographs

The fabled Stanton blocked passage exists in survey data so anyone who is super familiar with the caves he used to dig will be able to find its whereabouts but obviously cannot physically go there unless the cemented barrier is engineered away. I believe it was sealed on the basis that it was an absolute dead end but did contain some pretties along the way, considered worth preserving by stopping human traffic. It should be left alone.
That'll get the 'free access for all' clique going lol

The photo almost looks like a dodgy photoshop, but I think the whole photo is nastily over-edited so hard to tell...
