    Report - Moss Head Mine - Coniston - Feb '20

    The pictures i had seen of the remnants of the aerial ropeway got me really interested in this on however i had no idea quite what a climb it was to the top. We had to chuckle as 2 people in full hiking gear with poles passed us in wellies and waders. I was pleased to be wearing my cheap as...

    Report - Pen-yr-Orsedd Quarry - May 2019

    Going through memory cards from last year I found this little gem, the Pen-yr-Orsedd quarry. Although many of these quarry buildings are slowly returning to nature there's a certain level of photographic derpy-ness about them that I love. Maybe it's the fact that most derelict surface stuff in...

    For a few trips Wrysgan had been our back up mine on the way back to the car from another mine but turned out to be our back up mine following Croesor on the other side of the hill. Also while Wrysgan is one of the closest mines from the parking spot its still a bloody darn good hike!! Defending...

    Report - Pen yr Orsedd Quarry, Nantlle. April 2018

    Visited this slate quarry in Snowdonia during some super sunny Sunday. I'd been hillwalking the day before and spotted the quarry from Nantlle Ridge, the slate tips being hard to miss! . Reading the map, the name Pen yr Orsedd didn't ring any bells, so I tried to research it a bit but found...

    Report - Cowdale Lime Works, Derbyshire - August 2019

    The surrounding buildings definitely look very neo-egyptian and it almost makes the site look like its a themed area out of a closed theme park. There isn't that much other than the buildings and the kilns to see here, but still, a worthwhile explore. You can check out all my photos from this...

    Report - Moel Fferna Slate Mine - Llangollen - May '19

    A grand day out and another mine ticked off! every time I'm blown away by the sheer size of the chambers that really have to be seen to be believed or even just to get a scale of how huge they are, the countless man hours put in to extract the slate doesn't bear thinking about. Theres a few nice...

    Report - Penarth Slate Mine - Llangollen - Jan '19

    It seemed a great idea at the time... On the drive back from Cwmorthin Slate Mine in north Wales we though instead of sit in Friday evening traffic around Birmingham why don't we kill an hour at Penarth? Well having never been before i had no idea the hike up to the adit was worse than the hike...

    Having been taken to this site by a photographer some months ago, I came back a little later down the line to photograph it myself but held off on posting it for some time, at the photographer's request. It was impossible to find any information on this place or why it closed but this lime works...

    I have been working in Denbigh and drove past the quarry and seen from the road that there are old archways that’s been bricked up or made to garages.

    Report - Old Cocking Limeworks, West Sussex, June 2018

    I hope you'll forgive me for making a report on such a heavily reported area. I feel this is my first 'proper' explore where I went to a location and had to actually do some fence hopping and I managed to find the courage to do it by myself! I really enjoyed it and I'm so glad I went. The...
