    Bit of a personal victory this one. Had wanted to see this for a while so it was great to finally get in.

    This sand mine was worked during the late 18th/early 19th centuries by James Rouse. It is poorly known which is a great shame as it represents the largest and best preserved of nottingham's caves - much more worth the time than the tourist attraction underneath the broadmarsh anyway.

    The cave has recently been surveyed by nottinghamcavessurvey.org.uk, who have made the map available:

    On with some pics! Splored with Shadow, Thompski and RAF-N over a number of visits.

    Some sections have added supports:

    This gate separates the section used as shelters from the rest of the mine workings:

    Thanks for stopping by,
