This is one of the tunnels under the grounds of Ursinus College, but it is no longer in use.

Looking up shows just how old these labs are - the ceiling is exposed while students clamber up and down the stairs directly above us.

With the 'Radioactivity Laboratories' label still intact, the entrance to the labs requires a ladder to climb down to the doorway - it's never easy to get to the best secrets!

Rusted desks are piled high on the muddy ground inside one of the two sealed radioactivity labs.
