    As yesterday was the better of the two days Zerocool and I though lets hit Wistow mine as we havent done it in over a year and as we ( i:e me. Oopsy :eek: ) set the alarm off last time we didnt get all the pictures we wanted, anyhow we got there with nice blue sky ready for a days exploring until we saw people working on the ajoining house so Zerocool said "lets ask them as a permission visit will be easier" we met some fat dude there and asked to which he promptly told us to piss off and if we went in security would arrest us!!! Woooooo scary biscuits :D.
    So realizing that there were other mines in the Selby district that we havent done before and odds on tons of fun will be having security on speed dial we went a couple of miles up the road and did Stillingfleet which is part of the same complex and neither of us have done it before and we werent disappointed.

    We found a large shed that was used by maintenence by the look of it and it was very similar to the Wistow one with the crazy internall roof boards.

    Loads of old equipment in there.

    We then got across to the safety officers room.

    This place has a methane exctraction and combustion site to draw all the methane out of the workings below and dispose of it safely.

    Weighbridge still works too. Zerocool stood on it while I took the shot (fat little knacker) :p

    On the whole we thought it was better than Wistow so thanks fat boy for disuading us from going there as we wouldnt have gone here :thumb

    Zerocool will add some of his soon.
