If I remember right, this was the mine with that small slit called "Letter Box",
guiding to another part of the quarry, which never anybody normally grown will fit through ever, never.
The Franconian man surrendered in this, was also a dangerous position to get trapped.
Crew of visit: Oxygen Thief, PCWOX, Fazy UK, Altair and myself.

Kingsdown Quarry also commonly known as Swan Mine is a small bath stone quarry lying under the hillside along the road from Bathford to Kingsdown. The Main entrance to the quarry is opposite the Swan Inn which was once the Quarry managers house, the inn its self is held to the hill side by great iron chains anchored ito the buried workings of the quarry itself. Kingsdown Quarry was producing stone as far back as 1833.
