Entrances to Hell abound throughout the United Kingdom. Who knew?

I have to say I'm skeptical about some of those radiation counts. Honestly: 0.0009841 spectrons for a single doorway? Why, that's enough to give Old Scratch himself a sixth eye!

Super Link Performance! I thank you.

Non-descript metal doors have always been a little mysterious to me. Now I can add a creepy filter too.

Braaashteeefunorvallishhtuuu Satan's heat-image can sometimes be seen here and it has recently been proven that all of the earth's insects were born just inside the metal door

That's some serious insect output, but when you consider the sheer number of unnecessary vowels in the location's name, it all comes clear.

Also, that name sounds like throwing up after 12 pints of lager, 2 onion bhajees and a chicken vindaloo.

This is awesome. Just the right mix of earnest sincerity and complete insanity. Great link, staggernation.

There are several miles of beech panelling in the tunnels and it can be made invisible

Beech panelling! So fashionable! It must be specially-treated so as not to burn, I wonder if Home Depot has a special section? And is it the whole schmeer or just the panelling that can be made invisible?

It's like The Falls imagined by Vic Reeves! Thank you vastly, staggernation!

We don't have any around here, so we're digging our own.

Cooool. What a cool site. I sooo wish I'd thought of it. Heh.

(My links, that pale in comparison)
Is this ugliest of webpages appropriately also a gate to hell? What the hell is hell, anyway? If you enter this Hellsite, will it really infect your computer with viruses and ruin your credit? Is there a portal in Michigan or New York?

And can you display http://www.hell.no/? Hell, no.

This is the devil's primary access to Greater Manchester.

Crash, now that is truly hellish.

Or possibly Water Wrackets imagined by Chris Morris and Alexander Michael St John.

Safety Rules:

Rule 1: It may be an obvious thing to say but NEVER try to go inside an Entrance to Hell.
Rule 2: Always approach an entrance on your stomach.
Rule 3: Don't shout at the devil (not even with good news).
Rule 4: Wear rubber gloves for 3 or 4 days after your visit.


So many jokes, so little time.

I spy conspiracy. No mention for Swindon. Or Streatham.

The names alone are worth a visit.

ENTRANCES to hell, Riv. Not the place itself.

Yeah, that's right. I'm taking the piss from places I've never been. Sue me.

Cobblers ceases to exist for a few minutes every Wednesday morning.

Excellent, simply excellent.

I agree with the unanimous approval of the site, however what's with the incongruously cheerful purple & yellow color scheme?
posted by BigPicnic at 12:12 PM on December 12, 2002


Marvelous. The names alone are enough to recommend it.

But crash, did you have to link to that picture? Ever since I saw Fortress, those giant dumptrucks give me the creepy-crawlies...

That is so odd. I really like the deadpan tone of it.

Nice link, nice hell-gates. Graffiti really sucks.

But where is Dudley?

Anyone got a good shot of Merry Hill to send them?

Dudley is in the West Midlands, near Birmingham.
