SJ 090 748 (ish) (to be confirmed)
I have forgotten exactly where this is but it isn’t far from the marked mine on the O/S map.
Ungated and unknown
Rope, Rigging equipment
The bottom of the mine has water of a depth unknown
Unknown but probably Lead/Silver. 2 entrances, one short and typical adit the other requiring rigging and descent equipment.
The main adit slopes downwards at around 60 degrees making the descent somewhat dangerous – A rope to assist is a seriously good idea.
Towards the lower part of this descent, two passages lead off to the left and the right with one being blind and the other back filled or collapsed.
Following on downwards, the passageway becomes perilous and the floor gives way to a straight drop down to the mine floor some good distance below (perhaps 50/60 feet). The bottom could not be seen from the point reachable but water is known to be present from dis-lodged rocks falling.
There was no signs of rigging on the walls and a descent would not be possible without secured ropes/SRT/electrons etc.
Nothing is known of the passageway/mine below.
On the surface, there is a rotten plank covered hole which looks over the water logged passage and is (was?) very dangerous (being around 200feet above it) and is very difficult to spot especially in the dark.
A short adit (probably a trial) around 100 feet in length which is immediate flooded up to knackers depth. The short flooded bit can be passed to reach dry ground before the adit becomes blind.
The main mine at the bottom of the steep/dangerous slope is unexplored as it is currently ur-reachable.
