@tigger ahh I see so if was a permanent pair/set of boots rather than workers leaving their boots there between shifts
My impression was that they were deliberately taken in rather than swapped over. I guess if your boots were just about useless after being re-soled/nailed to the point of the uppers no longer holding then you might take the old pair in then. Each chamber and often junctions had a boot. The last bite of a crust orapple core was often into a corner on the way out...which I imagine must be the same kind of thing as the Cornish one. So many things we don't ask when young. The similarity of the names for these characters and the fact that the same symbology is commonplace around the world amazes me. In part I know it is due to the export of miners/engineers in the 17/1800's.

Well terrible news have just been back to do a further explore and the water is half a ft from the roof ,wanted to do a update but is far to dangerous and safety is everything am afraid it could be a few months to drain out
