    K.E.F - me and my dad still laughs at that moment where we all met up and thought - hold up whats he doing here.. thinking both the same and was waiting for the 'please leave asap':p
    Hi Timmy. Yeah at the back is it looks like settling pits. Have only ever found the one shaft & that is supposedly around 400 metres in depth. There's a couple more smaller buildings in the trees near the opencast stuff but nothing of any real interest.

    Just old working buildings i'd say, probably the first buildings built there looking at their construction. If it's the same cover i'm thinking it's just a water drain. I'm trying to get hold of some pictures of when the site was in use but no luck at the minute.
