Pleasantries exchanged, they moved into the cell itself, whilst Tom and I moved further west, tracing the route
of the cell underneath us. Tom wanted to explore the subterranean depths where the main exhaust pipe
array connected to the end of Cell 3. Our route took us along long forgotten gravel
pathways, under the massive pipes themselves, and then to a sheer concrete ditch in which the end of
Cell 3 could be seen meters below us.
We found a metal staircase and made our way down into the coolness. The bottom of the cell was flooded and we gingerly
waded through the oily water towards a doorway set in a sheer concrete wall. This opened into an underground passageway
which followed Cell 3 back towards its main building. Luckily this section was
slightly more elevated and we managed to avoid getting further wet feet.
Moving eastwards down into the flooded concrete trench beneath Cell 3.
