Had a pleasant trip to Browns this Saturday. We did a circular route taking in Clapham Junction, the ferret cage, the stables and the truck. Hats off to whoever has cleaned up the place. I don't think I've ever seen it so clean. Even the graffiti has been cleaned up. There's barely a trace of modern stuff. IP: 86.131.242.95

Its a guy named Brian who posts on darkplaces.
He has actually had a lot of agro in there from the dedicated daubers but they seem to leave him a lone now.
Locals recon they have seen him coming out at 1.0 in the morning.

Well he's doing a cracking job. I don't go on Darkplaces but if anyone here does, tell him it's appreciated. IP: 194.176.105.141

Mention mine as well, a fantastic job. He should know me we exchanged emails a while ago.
