Hi Jim,
We spent sometime, looking around the Dowgang vein complex. Peter J had provided me with a copy( exchanged for others whic I had of the abandonment plan) so we did a fair bit on that side of the Nent.
Eventually this ended with Robert & I, with the help of others, digging out the Scaleburn fall which enabled us to discover the horse whim.
