This is an air shaft to surface. I remember it being bit of a problem in 1961. IP: 146.198.96.27

As I understand it this air shaft was blocked by the mid 60’s and was cleared by Earby,
They did a very good job, in my opinion, since it has remained open since that time.
I agree it getting through it is not a walk in the park, but you have to be carefu!
Not easy when you are crawling through that water!
