    This completly blew me away! I can't believe this place exists and its only a 10 minute walk down the road from me!
    It started with a lead from a friend of mine, He once told me a few years ago that his aunt had some kind of small mine in her garden.
    But until recently I remembered what he had said and started researching everywhere on the internet only to come across a few old mine archive websites.
    which may I add, only mentioned the existence of the place. This made me really curious.
    A mate and me decided it was worth going up to their house and just asking politely to have a look around and it worked!
    Although she did mention that she would not usually let anyone in because its a reserve for bats.

    I was impressed at the size of the place! I was expecting one long passage and that was all,
    But I was surprised to find that it looped round on itself and split into separate passages in certain areas.

    This was the view down a large drop in one of the passages.

    Im not sure what this would have been used for. there was a hole leading up to high ground where lots of gravel had fallen through?

    This is the main entrance into the mines.

    Thought Id have a little play with lights before leaving.

    It was a great explore I would love to go back again but its all down to the owners of the house. It was so cool down there it felt like it had its own air conditioning unit which was lovely on a really humid day.
    Enjoy the pics. :thumb
