    Browns has been done many times, but i have never seen a report form this section of the workings.

    Browns underground quarry was originally part of the larger Monkton Farleigh Mine. It was cut off from the main quarry when the War Department converted MF for ammunition storage.

    The passage we crawled down would have originally linked browns to the larger MF part of the workings. The link between to two has been now bricked up as the MF districts are now privately owned. But you can still see a section of this tunnel.

    There are a few nice features here that almost make the painful crawl across the dead stone worth it!

    :Not Worthy To who ever discovered this root in the first place :thumb

    Its a tight old 'grovel' till you get to a lovely open tunnel

    This picture shows where the tunnel shrinks down under the arch.

    Spent ages trying to get a photo of this barrel, water has collected in it and the high lime content has literally turned it to stone.
