    HISTORY

    Browns Folly Mine is a Bath Stone quarry which was originally part of Monkton Farleigh Mine however when the War Department converted part of the quarry in to an ammunitions store they separated part of the quarry which is the area now known as Browns Folly. The main adit into the quarry was blasted by the military probably to prevent access to the Monkton Farleigh Ammunition Depot connected to Brown's Folly.

    Closed in the 1930's, Browns Folly Mine is an SSSI (Special Site of Scientific Interest) because of its national importance for hibernating and roosting bats.

    THE VISIT

    Not my first visit to Browns but first time for lenston147 who I hope enjoyed the wander around as much as I did. Browns always seems to have a bit of everything - weirdness, rails, props, troughs, etc. to name a few and it also is one of the cleanest mines I have ever been to. Anyway, on with a few pics.
