Halloween Mysteries

Published 31st of October, 2019

As it is Halloween I thought I would tell you about the spooky railway we discovered beneath our feet a while back. However, as we haven't been able to find out anything about it we thought it prudent to throw in some ruins for good measure...

Now, beneath the water here there is a lot of sand, so it makes filming quite difficult. I had to wait several weeks before I visited on a day where the water was calm enough to let me film underwater. However, I didn't have my snorkel at the time, so the film I took are a bit of the shot in the dark variety. Incidently, I have published the film separately.

You can see it here, and to the right of this picture you will also find another rail. So it is a definite railway track, as opposed to an old pipe.
