Hello and welcome to a brand new incarnation of Nettleden.com!
Nettleden.com celebrates it's sixth birthday this year, so after six successful years in which Nettleden.com has gone from strength to strength, I thought it was about time the site got a bit more modern. The new site offers everything it did before, that is, loads of information on bunkers, bases, tunnels and quarries in the South-West of England. In addition to that, you can now interact with our database of exploration venues. You can blog your trips, you can tag the venues you have explored, comment and find other explorers in your local area. As this basically means, I am handing the site over to you, the site should grow and grow and very soon we'll be able to add to the list of venues and go far beyond the South-West of England. To take advantage of all that the new site has to offer you need to sign up. Of course registration is free and open to anyone. Once signed up you'll get your own profile page and you will be able to start interacting. Oh and don't worry, it's all secure and no one from outside the site will know where you've been exploring. As the venues we list on the site are usually of some historic interest, we prefer not to give detailed list of directions on how to get there, please bare this in mind when you comment. Instead we offer a VIP membership service which allows you access to this information. If you are a serious Urban Explore who has been to various locations as a member of other websites, groups or organisations then it is free to upgrade your account. Alternatively, make some friends, get yourself know, prove you are worthy and you may soon find that one of your VIP friends has promoted you. Well, I hope you like the new Nettleden.com, I've put a lot of thought, research and time in to making it. I'd like to thank Jamescl for his help with the project, his given feedback throughout the whole process. The site has been about four months in development so far and at this stage it is really a beta site, I got a little impatient and pressure was growing to launch the site so here it is. But there are still two key features which aren't live on the site yet. Within the next few months you will be able to upload, share and tag your friends and venues in photos and videos as well as organise and promote urban exploration events. For now, I hope you enjoy the site and find your way around OK. I'm sure you'll hear from me soon as more features come online. I look forward to receiving your feedback through the contact page. Thanks for visiting Nettleden.com, Steve AKA Higgypop (go on, add me as a friend!)
