    Visited as part of the Wiltshire Weekender with Oxygen Thief, The Franconian, Fazy_UK and PCwox. Nice relaxed wander and something new for myself. Saw all of the upper level with Fazy_UK while waiting for the others, who took considerable time in making their entrance/unsticking The Franconian from the rather tight entrance with a selection of make shift tools that were found in the woods... :D


    A very unique former Bath stone quarry, the quarry is small in size but has some interesting features. The quarry comprises of two levels which are connected by a stone staircase and a vertical shaft connecting both levels with the surface. There are many blocks of Ashlar which were stacked up but never moved to the surface.

    A very steep and narrow slope shaft leads down in to the upper layer of the quarry. Once inside there is a narrow stone staircase which leads down in to the lower level of the quarry.

    In the lower level many sawn blocks of Ashlar are stacked up but were never removed, this was possibly due to a collapse at a smaller shaft in the centre of the mine preventing the removal of the stone.

    A shaft has been sunk from the surface down through both levels of the quarry, this would have been used to remove stone from both levels up to the surface. The shaft is now capped.

    On with some pics :)





    5. Going down to the lower level - another tight squeeze just around the corner!





    10. Probably the worst glory hole I've ever had the mis-pleasure of trying :(

    11. Remains of the underground railway.


    13. OT's photography class.


    15. And finally it wouldn't be a complete report with a cheeky pic of a stuck TF :D

    Thanks for looking :thumb
