Afternoon all, figured I’d introduce myself. Just moved to the dales from Warwick and loving the change of scenery

I’m will, I’m more of a novice mine explorer but beginning to get into SRT and more serious explores, either solo or with friends. I’m really awful with introductions so I guess I’ll leave it here but I’ll see you all around Smile

Why not have a look at Goodluck Mine, Via gellia nr Cromford.
We are there first Sunday in every month from 10am, group of mine explorers and cavers still digging and pushing the mine.
Meet in the layby near Tufa Cottage.

Welcome to AN Will, as well as the Goodluck there's the Peak District Mines Historical Society and the Wirksworth Mines Research Group actively exploring mines in the Peak.
