    I have had these on my hard drive since the date above suggests,wasn't going to bother with a report but after seeing some recent activity on here of one of the locations im posting i thought why not!

    I gave Tucker a shout some years back about a report he had posted and asked if it was the same location as another report i had seen titled very similar,turns out they where different locations and he was kind enough to point me in the direction of these two small workings

    Tuckers report can be found here...

    http://www.28dayslater.co.uk/bedlams-bank-lower-chaldon-workings-surrey-april-2010.t49948

    Seems they go by different names as they are classed as Chaldon/Bedlams bank and Merstham..So im going with the Merstham

    There is much on the WCMS website in their archives of the Various workings in the area and a lot of very old documents of peoples personal accounts and digs and squabbles over access rights and land ownership which i wont bore you with by copy and pasting ,these are Firestone and they date back a very long time yet seem to have gone undocumented by the masses!

    Anyhow here are some pictures from mine and Obscurity's two visits over the space of a year and a half.

    Quarry No 4 up first

    Thanks to Obscurity for driving and Good company while searching out other things in the area which where the main reason for coming down here and thanks to Tucker for these two which made for a nice backup plan :thumb
