    Maybe a change of name would be a good start or just add "Non" before Underground Explorer ;)

    It"s not how it normally works on here i"m afraid. First post & you"re asking for locations /information & you could be anybody. Info is normally gained from being part of the Forum which involves contributing (although i wonder sometimes)

    As far as i"m aware (with my limited knowledge) The Mining community are very tight lipped regarding locations to outsiders from their local groups/clubs etc and with good reason from what i gather, not just the risk from other Mining types but the general public wandering around willy nilly putting themselves and others at risk if they get in trouble.

    But i"m sure you"re already aware of this being an "Underground Explorer" :thumb

    Ok sorry and yes there very tight lipped but for good reason, the fact is I don't want to drive for two hours just to go visit a site and then all the way back. It's take up four hours of my day in traveling, It's not that I don't kno locations because I do. But not ones I particularly feel save visiting, for example one is 800ft above sea level in a cliff face with only a small animal trail leading to it, only other option is srt, but still no safe anchor points to do so.... It's ok if people won't help me, because Ile find out where they are one way or anougher and Evan if I don't, I will be traveling to Cornwall during summer months! This is mainly so I don't have to travel on my motorbike in horrible weather but owell, I guess Ile just play the waiting game, thank you anyway

    You could try aditnow or mine explorer.........you will get the same response if you ask for locations but one of them has a mine locator by area

    What type of report? Ive been to local libraries to research and looked at old ordonce surveys and they only show me the one I allready visit, and nothing about the other two I kno that are there but nothing on any maps, not Evan on the internet so I guess not much is known about the place / not many people know about them

    I'd also recommend http://www.devonss.org.uk/ - I've met some of the guys and they're an OK bunch. I've been meaning to join up but I'm too short of time to do anything with it.

    You said you had heard of Fullabrook Mine but not sure of the location. Took me 10 seconds on Google to get the Grid Reference. Its about 8km south of Ilfracombe and is marked on the OS map. Here's a YouTube video of it
