Excelsior Tunnel: UK Atomic Weapons Research establishment chamber (Public)

Kelvin Lake beside one of the AWRE chambers. The Excelsior Tunnel was the site of Phase A of Operation Orpheus and involved a small charge being fired in a 6 foot diameter cavity in granite and shale at depths of 100 to 300 feet. Phase B took place in the US.

The test took place deep underground and proved the theory to be true.
