Is their a group member on here that works at Caphouse.
The only reason I am asking is a friend wants me to see if they can unlock an Eccles lamp for him.
All the best Gavin

The answer is yes and we would try and unlock the lamp. We have rarely failed to open them. There is also The Miners Lamp Collectors Society ( little meet ) taking place there on Sunday 29th Oct.
