There has been quite the cavalcade of reports on this place recently, but as I'd never been before and I don't seem to post much, I thought I'd put this up.

Won't cover history here, as I'm sure you're all sick of it :cool:

Visited with Diehardlove, RAF-N and J4M35_UK, thanks guys for a top day out, and thanks Diehardlove for the lending of the torch, much appreciated :thumb

On with the pics!

Couple of exteriors to start the 'splore off:

After a short mooch around the exterior workings, (which are great) we headed on in.

Ice stalagmites! Seriously cool:

Fork in the road:

The old wooden supports still in place:

Old equipment, possibly my favourite shot of the day:

Railway tracks and sleepers still in situ.

More ice formations, this stuff was beautiful:

A nice winch that still turns:

All in all, this mine has character in shedloads, and in-situ equipment in similar amounts. Great little explore to while away a few hours underground. Thanks again to the guys for showing me round :thumb

Cheers for looking!
