Bedlams Bank is a very extensive firestone quarry ranging in age from the Late Medieval to the Stuart era and was worked by hand for much of that time, there are about 10 miles of open passages and several entrances. Firestone is a building stone and before the advent of the railways it was the best building material in the surrounding area, being used in buildings such as Hampton Court Palace and Windsor Castle; it has been a popular building material since the Roman times.

Visited with Urban Junky, Urbansurgeon, Shadow, Jesus and Skydiver over a couple of visits.

Access, as stated on the WCMS website is via a 4m shaft under hinged manhole cover and requires full rigging and rope access.

Many parts of the explorable network have become flooded and are very unstable in parts
