Urbex: AEI Cable Works


My urbex career has peaked….way too early!

The AEI Cable works doesn’t have much left standing apart from this solitary building but this isn’t what we came here for.

Henley/AEI Cable Works

Finding something underground has been on the list since I started exploring. This specific trip was one of the most difficult entries with all of the main entrances being welded shut.

The shelter was built for the Henley/AEI Cable work employees and to avoid confusion there were six separate entrances with clearly marked corridors to keep track of everyone and help employees find their way during a raid.

The shelter was pitch black so playing around with torches was fun to expose the photos.
These were all taken in-camera using different torches/lights and only small elements of cropping to achieve the final result.

Keep this side clear.
