This week we're heading into Parc Lead mine for a scoot down to Floor 3. Thumb Up SRT kit is needed as there are couple of rope sections on the way down. It's good and damp so wetsocks might help keep the misery at bay. Laugh

Everyone welcome but please be aware of CAL's access requirements:

Meet at Hafna around 6:15pm

I'll be there.

For those who are unsure, you need BCA insurance to come along. In fact, it is just a good idea to have it anyway! See below.

Doubt I'll make it sorry, we're planning on handing this building over last Tuesday so the pressure is on.....

Last minute instructed additional works to get the Principle Contractor out of trouble??
No problem! Heavy civils contractors? Yep that's us! Didn't realise that we were also painters, decorators and carpet fitters! Laugh Laugh

Thanks again for another great trip, guys! What a great mine! I was wondering if Ed (not sure of his username) could send me the photo he took of the submerged mine cart, that was really something?!
