Proboscine readers may recall this post about Silent UK, in which I remarked:

I must say, I’ve never really though of trespass as a hobby before and I can’t bring myself to agree with it. I can, however, appreciate some of the fantastic photographic results and the images of otherwise secret history that their naughtiness generates.

And I stand by all of that. But I was still somehow saddened to read today that the protagonists recently got nabbed and of the decision which that has forced upon them:

Regardless of the punishment I am to receive, the irrevocable damage has been done, the confidence built over six years gone. Now even the thought of entering the Underground I have spent the past four years of my life wandering, makes me sick to my stomach. I never want to go through that again, unfortunately the only way to completely avoid this, is to stop. The effect this has had on my life, my studies and even my career has been unbearable. Even as I write this I realise it’s not over, no guarantees that it will end when I next answer bail.

However, they’ve decided to go out with a bang, publishing an account of a recent outing to St Paul’s Cathedral and some absolutely incredible pictures taken while they were there.

And thus, it would appear that Silent UK will not be updated from here on in. I just hope that they keep the site up anyway as some of the photographic work on there is absolutely stunning.

  1. Not sure what probo… means, but I’m not one cause I can’t recall your post. Awesome website though, just spent an hour on it great photo’s, very interesting.

  2. Stan > Pertaining to elephants = good memory.
    Yes – fantastic site – interesting stories, good narrative syle (spelling often iffy though) and superb photos.

  3. It’s a pity, because the revealing photos were pretty awesome, but at the end of the day, the law is the law and you can’t run away from that… unless of course you are a celebrity, rich, have political clout, etc, etc. 🙂
