Anyone got a plan of Wiregill mines that they would be willing to upload? I've got one somewhere - I'd like to have a glance at it but that would take a major archaeological intervention to find the damn thing. TIA

I've added Fairbairns plan to the same place, but looks like it just based on the LLCo one. IP: 2.223.118.225

Thanks Chris, Pete,

a recce last week revealed a large amount of shale spalled from the roof, just outbye of the arching on the main level at "48" just aboce "Zero Point" on Pete's plan, thereby blocking 90% of the arch

Although still open to air and water, only humans equipped with snorkels would be able to push further

I daresay with a bit of judicious gardening a more amenable headspace could be achieved! Unfortunately its a long way in, through deep, cold water Crying
