about 200 yards to a collapse as it enters the vein, it is also the water supply for the nearby Farm, I entered with the permission of the owner and drinker of said water who wanted to know the condition of the mine. IP: 192.158.54.12

Have you been into Porter Level on the other side of the ridge?
I understand Moredale Ridge Level was abandoned due to "unstable ground" after 12fms in 1844.

Porters Level is currently inaccessible. It has two adits - an early hand level and a later horse level which converge a few yards in. We had a dig at both last year and the hand level looked the most promising, but we've not yet to got around to going back.
