A visit with Xan Asmodi, this slate mine was cold and unfriendly despite the gloriously beautiful walk to reach it, we both agreed that it was just so huge that it sucked up all available light and despite having some lovely features it was not on our list of favourites...having said that the artifacts and fantastic scenery kind of redeemed it...It has been redundant since the 1930's.

anyway firstly a short video of our visit, very little underground filming due to the light of 3 Xml t6 torches being woefully inadequate inside this monster....
it is here



the pictures

After the Yomp to the top we saw the open part of the mine and the access..a very small Xan in the picture

Getting inside we realised just how big this place was

I only had Xan for scale but at over 6ft tall he was dwarfed by the sheer size of this mutha ..see this incline that ran two carts.

Same incline from the side, also note another adit that we did not explore...here we met Trancentral and Degeneratron..funny who you meet in a mine :)

And from the front, you can see the incline ahead of the cart.

Another caverous chamber with a three way cart track..again check that roof.
