HISTORY

Absolutly none unfortunatly. Don't know when it was worked, who worked it, when it was closed, etc. We were coming back up the old tramway after visiting a couple of other places and we literally just came upon this place. Since visiting, have found a survey from the late 1990's but thats about it.
