I've posted this in general in the hope that someone who uses this site sees this post and and takes the appropriate action.

The above mine has been available for all in the know to enjoy the underground experience of a 20th century coal & fireclay mine. Great effort and time was put into gaining access and securing the entrance to make it as inconspicuous as possible.
Whoever has been going in recently has shown complete disregard to all the hard work put in by good people back in the 90's. Due to not replacing the entrance cover(don't have a clue how you've managed to lose it!!) you have jeopardised the future of this gem for future generations!

What boils my **** is that I probably took the culprits in there in the first place!

Such a shame, I have felt really lucky to see this place on the occasions that you have taken me in there, it would take a weapons grade fool to leave it uncovered Guns
I hope the cover turns up Stew Sad
