New video up, and in this one Haggs mine ensures we are fully wet, before revealing it's beautiful alien formations and amazingly beautiful, colourful shale bandings to us :

The earliest workings around Haggs Mine where developed before the actual horse level was driven. These consisted of levels and trials north of the horse level. One of the larger levels was the High Raise Low Level, which worked the High Raise Vein discovered in 1789 by the Brownley Hill Company. There is no reference that shows when the Haggs Horse Level was first started, but records indicate that the Nentsberry Haggs Vein was being worked in 1737, which is the course of the horse level.

The mines output was the greatest until 1938, after this the mine was worked sporadically by a number of different companies. Finally the last operator, the Anglo-Austral Company stopped its operations in 1953, with the mine being formally abandoned on the last day in 1958.
