I paid a quick visit to Cults limestone mine yesterday, found what I think is an older entrance into the mine and had a quick look inside. It's damp and after a fairly nasty roof fall, it's flooded. I got as far as I could in wellies, but I will need to go back after a long dry spell and take waders. I plan to go back next week and find the main entrance which should yield better results.

My wife was waiting for me outside so the photos were taken quickly handheld rather than light painted.

Just inside the entrance:

Further in, the start of a nasty fall:

Water on the other side of the fall:

Looking back at the fall from the water:

Off to the left beyond the fall was a little side chamber with pipes running through it:

I will post more after I've been back. I was also up on the surface looking around the lime works, but I'll post those pics in the industrial section.
