    Team Pasty returned to the deep mine shaft at the weekend for another exploration session and photo taking.

    We have now explored the majority of this mine with the exception of a few tunnels which may lead to other areas.
    We spent another 2 and a half hours down here and it was still just as fascinating, we saw a whole load of new bits we managed to miss last time and i expect it will be the same when we return again.

    We think this is the skip from a mine cart on its side without the wheels?

    Copper staining, it was nice to see some colour after so long seeing brown and orange.
