That's very kind,
(quick pause in typing while I skip round the room in a happy dance accompanied by worried looks from my colleagues)
but as Chris said I am far from the only one doing this sort of thing.

A lot of people keep the mines open throughout the country and without them our scope of places to go would be greatly diminished so hooray for those who like spending days on end labouring in cramped, wet, muddy conditions. FlowersThumbs Up

How many people do take this kind of Conservation work for granted? A good number I’d wager. I certainly used to.


I suppose its natural with an 'abandoned' mine to assume its always been the way it is now.

You only gain a perspective over many years when you start to remember the bits which have been gained and lost.
