    It was quite a long time since I last went down a mine so last weekend it was time to scratch the itch.

    Some History first.

    After walking up and down the A5 looking for the footpath up to the mine, myself and Trancentral gave up and decided to follow the old tramway straight up the hill. It was not a nice trek at all and I was knackered by the time we reached the mine workings.

    On the surface ruins of the old processing buildings still remain.

    After quick rest and a drink then we where ready to go underground.

    After taking this shot we saw torch lights and heard someone politely shout "good afternoon". We clambered back down the incline and met up with two blokes, one of them was wearing a famous pair of pants. Of all the people it could have been it turned out to be Xan Asmodi and The Kwan!. After a chat we split up and carried on with our explores.

    There are about 4 of these winches still down there.

    The blue looking light is my 85w hid torch. Its a crap colour for light painting but its huge lumen output easily lights huge dark places.
