How far does this mine go?
I read that it was started in 1828 and was supposed to have reached Devis Hole by 1891

Sadly doesn't go anywhere near that far anymore. Ends in a fairly large collapse from what I remember - in plenty of mucky water too!

I go mine exploring as it's easier than doing housework...
