    No reports from us for a while.

    Heres a mine we went down during winter, Had heard about it from other people but nobody was prepared to tell us where exactly it was, or how to get in...!
    Dont really know much info im afraid, old workings and its not very well known or visited often.
    A day searching and we found a few blocked adits, no luck there, until a stroke of luck by chance we found a sneaky way in.

    The tunnel led to a shaft which must have been capped off and sealed above. We fixed some ropes and absailed down in.
    Another pasty carrying explorer arrives.
    Following one of the levels in, there were a couple planks of doom to cross.
    The stopes were near vertical, and we could see other tunnels below us, so we fixed some bolts so we could safely go further down.
    One of the first artifacts, a metal skip at the bottom of another shaft, looking up you could see the timber lining, but it was dripping water and not easy to photograph.
    Further in lead to more great artifacts...
    pile of fuse
    forgotton tools
    We went further in, in involved crossing a series of pretty dodgy stopes, with very rotten wood and lots of loose stone waiting to fall in
    Then we found some metal cart track, followed it, and found this.... best one ive seen yet still in situ!
    Retraced our footsteps and got back out, a nice little explore.
