Soo.... we done a small bit of Browns Folly mine that also known as FDQ. Not gonna lie was shocked how open access this mines are
I explored with 3 nonmembers.
Due to running out to time and long drive home - Only explored a very small amount of the mine but I am going back in Oct to explore the rest of them and another set in the area


This site has been done to death so some basic info :)

history: Browns Folly Mine
Browns Folly Mine is an average sized Bath Stone quarry which was originally part of Monkton Farleigh Monkton however when the War Department converted part of the quarry in to an ammunitions store they separated part of the quarry which is the area now known as Browns Folly

Good report. That looks very interesting. There's a large limestone mine in my village, Middleton by Wirksworth, but unfortunately access is no longer possible due to strong barriers and 24 hour tight security. We often wonder if it's being used for a secret purpose.
