Do you mean the one where the crane sticks out of the flooded workings? If so it must be a good 60 - 70 feet.
It is a very impressive place. What I noticed too is how clear the lower chambers are of fallen blocks and debris.

IIRC that's the chamber where you can scramble up to the bottom of the sloping air shaft? I think there's two chambers there which were joined when workings broke up from below. It has to be 150 - 200ft. IP: 90.213.41.187
