This abandoned railway tunnel is a remnant of the high level railway that for a short time ran through Sydenham Hill wood or Gt North wood as it was called then. The line took passengers up the steep hill to the Crystal Palace and was painted by Camille Pissarro from the footbridge at the eastern end (still in use)https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lordship_Lane_railway_station#/media/File:Pissarro_lordship.jpg
The "cave" is home to several species of bat and this mural by street artist Louis Masai has recently replaced some rather poor graffiti.

An interesting mural to complement the bats that live within the "cave". The IR conversion has created a pleasing contrast between that of the foliage and the entrance (and mural itself) to the "cave'.

I'd say you were very VERY BRAVE to even get this close to a place where the bats hang out. I especially like your IR treatment - really pops those bats right off their mural.
