    Visited with vwdirtboy, sheep2405 and then total404 and a friend the next day :)

    Well more like a quarry than a mine.. The workings were 1st dug from the top to begin with then later through an adit on the side of the mountain.

    Opened in 1800 and closed around 1884 not to long but the workings were mined to an impressive size some around 400ft deep with the main pit being around 120ft in diameter.

    Since being re-discovered in 2007 it has been extensively dived by diving clubs and electric lighting and scaffold platforms have been setup for this purpose.

    All in all it was a good explore and I am planning further visits soon with VW and Sheep and maybe a dingy or 2 and some dive gear ;) watch this space!

    On with the pics....
