Oh, I know that scene quite well. My wife used to live in Brislington, and we used to stroll down that way.

It's very strange to see the pictures of the tunnel mouth without all the undergrowth and rubbish around it that there is present these days.

I'll make sure that I look out for this at Scaleforum.
