    Originally I was looking at a Derp above Buxton
    but it was sealed on the ground floor and the flood lights shining onto it made the second floor access a bit dodgy
    so I resigned myself to not getting in :banghead

    Shortly after I spotted this in the side of a hill and decided to have a look.

    I'm not actually sure what it is, there are no buildings around and it just suddenly ends, all the walls are brick with a couple of small side arches which go back about a foot possibly for passing other people but as it's all brick I can't see how it could be a mine :confused

    [​IMG]

    The water inside is only what is leaking from the roof and I imagine having a couple of steps inside wouldn't be practical for carts

    Another side arch this time taller than the first

    [​IMG]

    Close to the end is soil piled up at the side

    [​IMG]

    And then it just ends :crazy

    Any ideas?​

    If this is above fairfield, then I think it has something to do with quarrying, something about linking up mine workings with quarries or something, my mates used to play in these

    How abrupt is that ending! Possibly a collapse do you think? Great shots all the same though :thumb
