    Visited with Si O'Doom, Hydra and Rigsby.

    We got there a little early so took a look around one of the slopeshafts, topside, to get things in context for Hydra, who hadn't been before. It was well worth the effort because the fire escape lights were on and we could see straight down to the bottom of the shaft and slightly beyond.

    Loading bay doors at SE slope shaft...

    Next a trip to Browns Mine.

    The square pool...

    ...with a large number of deads in there at the moment.

    Next, a trip to Monkton Farleigh mine.

    Trying out a new searchblaster. Great long range spread, but useless for light painting any closer than 50 metres...

    As usual this place kept surprising us. Various newspaper clips with historical events, new signage and things like that.
