    Hope you enjoyed my photos. Remember quarries are dangerous places, more so when they are unmanned so don't go getting yourself squashed in an abandoned mine somewhere! :thumb

    Hey, I visited it today and the upper quarry has only two entrances now, partially blocked and it is getting infilled by waste earth. Nice headroom right at the entrances but there is a deep mud unfortunately. Quite fresh, cracked on surface and pretty deep. Shame, the other limestone mines I´ve been to so far (Cults- old works and Leven Seat) were dry but more confined with roof collapses. Roof hanging in thin air and lot of soil falling in one place forming a tidy piles. Looks like a shake hole is forming above the ceiling and it has a cupole shape covered with stalactites.

    The entrances in lower quarry are blocked too but it is possible to crawl over the top I think. I only took pictures from above, I will come again soon.

    Today I wasn´t equipped properly (not hard hat, wellies and not enough lights) so I had a good mooch around. There are nice old ruins across the road and in one small quarry I have seen an addit blocked by heap of stones.

    Well, I stopped exploring and going places some time ago - after two succesful trips to Forth rail bridge we got busted by workers and were handed to BTP and had to spend two days at St. Leonards. They were thinking that we were terrorist because of black clothes and backpacks. Later the court sessions followed (breach of peace). Nothing happened but it was not good, all that waiting for sentence. That all cheesed me off and now I am a newfag starting again:confused:
