    Hi all,
    After visit to Astley coal mine museum yesterday, I thought this might good be a good place to explore and climb. The head gear is in bad shape but climbable from engine end leg. Anyone interested ?
    Also engine basement looks like good place to explore as well.

    Hey Ojay, great picture.
    When i went it was open and no one seemed to mind walking anywhere I wanted, next time need to hunt for remains of engine2 and also look for more railtrack areas, found a 1920 plan of site to survey :)
    yeh, was a bit worried about railings on headgear as you can see broken railings on climbing leg not far up.
