Middleton Mine is the only underground Limestone mine in the UK. The mine itself is split over three levels and stretches a staggering 22 miles underground.

Its unclear when the mine originally opened but its origins date back to when one part of it was used for lead mining. It was only in the 1900s that the mine turned to Limestone mining.

This place was truly massive, just the size of the main tunnels is breath taking. We most likely didn't event cover a 5% of the mines on our trip here, as we where quite wary of getting lost in the huge amount of tunnels. Anyway on with the photos

An amazing explore, but very dangerous. would be so easy to get lost in the maze of tunnels down there, the air is very thin at some points and there are warnings about that indicate certain shafts are filled with radon gas (radioactive gas).
