Few from a abandoned fluorite mine in Derbyshire with the ladder off doom, was a heavy one lol

Sallet Hole Mine, which was originally driven as a sough to the workings under Longstone Edge, before being modified into a haulage level in 1840-42. A 32ft diameter waterwheel originally powered crushing rollers here, but all traces of it have been destroyed by later workings. In the 20th century it worked for fluorspar, first from 1926-30, and then from 1965. It worked Deep Rake below the depth of the opencast workings on Longstone Edge, and in 1990 produced 73,000 tonnes of ore. It finally closed in 1998, and water still flows from it today

Sub level two is pretty bad stay in the centre if to the left you can soon be to your waist in thick mud, sub level 3 don't go far but a cool little waterfall down there.. I've got a map for down there and the other levels alot of others don't seem to goto
