    Sweet old skool pics!



    It's a kick in the bollocks it got sealed. I fancied doing it at some point on my return to the UK. Man, dog and iphone types generally ruin it for everyone in the end. If not them, then entitled caving folk who look down on us explorers. Just look at all the crap with Brown's and the WCMS too - some of which nearly ended in a few people getting a shoeing. I don't think it'll stay sealed forever though. For some reason sealing mines in particular only serves as an even greater incentive for someone to bust them open.

    Sheeeet your an organised bunch Very interesting photographs!
    It must feel rather surreal viewing them old drawings for the first time, do you ever find any new ones, well old ones, you know what I mean...drawings that haven't been recorded before?

    Doubtful if any original drawings remain to be found as they were carefully recorded many years ago and all of the mine is surveyed.In saying that some areas remain concealed behind deads so you never know. Later years saw loads of route markings but most now lead to buried entrances so " Out " might not lead out.The current stuff is the horrible spray paint which has spoiled many areas.
