    Hi all, a new member but very old lurker here. I've finally decided to take the plunge and actually go and deliberately find someone to look round. I've got a place in mind - it's really tame compared to some of the epic places I've seen on here, but you have to start with little steps...

    So hopefully I will post something sort of interesting up, and if anyone has good advice for a first time explore I'm all ears....

    Thanks.

    Welcome email in. It's a big old place is West Yorkshire I'm sure you'll be able to find something that's worth a nibble ;)

    If as a lurker you ever not noticed any local reports ? Try using the Search box in the top right .

    Also maybe expand your intro a bit. Tell us about what yr into are you mobile can you climb etc etc all this stuff can make the difference between members ignoring you or getting in touch.

    Hi Acid, mr Beady

    I've not written much because I was planning on writing it after I actually do an exploration and report - it seemed a bit presumptious to say I could do all this and that and whatnot without actually, well having done it. Also conscious of the fact that I suspect there are people from the press who pop up on here etc so wanted to validate myself as being "real" as it were first... however...

    I first got interested when Coalite shut down, and before it get really silly with security I snuck in and took a whole load of photos of more or less everything, the main offices, labs, tar towers and so forth. Lost the whole set of negatives (which shows how long ago that was!) in a flood though. I do have a few digital photos of the main offices after the fire though and some of the paperwork and dockets they had round the back.

    My interests are really old industry, mine sites, quarries, mills and factories, although not too much into the undergraound stuff at mines etc, more like looking at the surface stuff. I can climb, but don't like to, I'm a tubby guy so don't squeeze in holes, but I can jump a lot further than you think - hence the username...

    Hopefully I'll get to my lil site sometime this week and but up a modest report once I figure out the protocol for writing one up.

    Cheers all :-)
