PostSubject: Westminster Mine   Tue 06 Apr 2010, 10:12 am

Just been having a bit of a read up on this, does anyone know of the through trip that is quoted here?

Westminster vein was first examined by explorers in the 1970s when workings from New Shaft were explored. In 1990 work began to re-enter Bog Mine at the eastern end of Westminster vein. In 1992 a through-trip (New Shaft to Bog Issa Footway Shaft) was established of about a mile in length and which passes through workings over 300 feet below surface.

only from what ive read on that site and heard from Cris Ebbs (thats his site by the way) who incidently wants me to get pictures for him if i ever go down there, somehow dont think the OTHER club will let me go down but you never know, if you want to get in there best speak with Grosvenor Caving Club or North Wales Caving Club as they hold the keys so to speak but we all dont get on very well so may be a little difficult ..possibly cheers
