    Hi, I need helping getting into a barred off area in Avanchnzel. I've entered the door to the Avanchnzel Boilery and walked across the grating with a Dwarven Spider trapped underneath it. Then I came across the room with the ghosts of the adventures talking about something (the room before the one with the spinning blade trap). In that room it looks like there's a barred entrance to get under the grating I mentioned. Does anyone know how to open the bars? I can't find a lever anywhere.

    actually walk all the way round the grating there will be stairs. That barred door is your exit out from the main room. You still have a lot of walking to do to get to the other side of that door. Not sure if you have run into a door like it before but it is one of the ones with the wooden bar across it that you have to lift before you can open it. Good luck.

    Thanks for the reply. I know about the door with the wooden bar across it but it's a different door I'm talking about. Here's a picture if it helps:

    HMMM, don't recognise that door, can you show a screen shot of the map. If not I will run to that dungeon tonight when I get home and see if I can find it. LOL

    Is there another door in that room, does it have shelves on either side of that door?

    read through here and see ifyou can find a clue. I don't recognize that door, or quite know where you are, so I'm not sure how to help.

    re-reading you OP, and seeing the picture, look around for a pull chain, or a lever, or one of them pull switches.

    I ran thru a video of the dungeon cuz I didn't either and the only glimpse I have of one that I know there was not a pull chain by was in a room with some bookshelves on either side, but that room was right before the hall with the spinning blade at the very end and you didn't need to go thru that door.

    Ok here's a screenshot of the map requested by Necromis
    Screenshot17450.jpg
    I don't think it matters now though. I just looked on the UESPWiki and it lists it as a bug:

    'Just after the unreachable spider and before the flashback there is what appears to be a spike style entry into the pipe section where the spider is. This entry is non-functional and cannot be opened.'

    I guess they forgot to include a way to open it lol

    Thanks for your help everyone

    um, did you happen to notice the big door if you turn right from this door in your picture. I took the time to actually go all the way down and find the door you are looking at. It is on the left hand wall between two book cases/shelves. However, if you head straight down that room there is a door opposite where you came in and is where you are supposed to go. So yeah, you can't go in that door, probably not a bug, but more asthetics, it was probably able to be opened from the other side when the dweamor were around. Just go thru the correct door avoid the pressure plates and have fun with the boss at the end.

    Yeah looks like that door is just for aesthetics, I no-clipped through it and there was nothing behind it of interest apart from the dwarven spider that was stuck under the grating but no chests or anything. I've already been all the way through Avanchnzel and killed the boss and lifted the wooden bar off the door at the end. It was just the other door I was curious about.

    LOL so all of this just cuz you wanted to explore a room that wasn't really meant to be explored. LOL I thought you were having issues actually completing the quest line.

    If it’s any consolation for people who are still curious. I found a way to get through the bars my OCD would not let me leave until I got in. You bring along a platter. Manipulate the platter so that it is in between you and the bars, keep walking forward into the the platter and bar and voila you’re in. Not sure if I can get out yet should have packed two platters
