Does anyone know the total passage length of the Cults limestone mine? I've made a rough estimate by measuring the passages on the plan using the scale on the map, a third of the plan is unmapped and marked as 'old waste' so has to be guessed at but it seems that Cults has (at a conservative estimate) in the region of 40km or about 25 miles of tunnels, this is the mine as a whole, some is now flooded.

David. Have you seen the plan John_Smith has put on the documents section. It may be of some help. As at today top of the list on the home page. Jeremy IP: 86.148.18.169

Yes, Ive seen that thanks, I also have the official mine plan from the Cults Limestone company, which rather unhelpfully shows mostly what are now underwater areas of the mine! The mine starts to flood at about the 10410 level and goes as deep as about 10280 which is over a hundred feet below the water table. it would be a truly vast place to explore if all of it was dry.
