What makes it so special is that it starts (finishes?) on a cliff face so the multiple adits / holes have a great visual impact before you even get inside. The area had been mined for hundreds of years though the main...

    Question - Shall I climb it?

    So me and a friend have been discussing climbing the tamar bridge. We’ve agreed if we do it, we’ll climb it at darkness to avoid the eye of the public and reduce our chance of being caught. Obviously we are aware with cameras n such there is a still a high chance of that happening. If we are...
