In this footage from a professionally commissioned survey, a camera is lowered 650 feet or 200 metres down a flooded coal pit shaft to examine the damage from a huge collapse, looking at various features on the way.

The shaft was started in the 1870s, was 14 foot wide and reached a depth of 282 metres or 925 feet. The mine closed in the 1960s.

Enjoy the video and stay safe.

So was your video survey you was doing to help the coal board out or somebody ? Just wondering as you have clearly gone to a lot of effort doing this and not reaching the very bottom am A bit confused .

Cheers Tom

I'm informed by the person who did it, it was for the coal authority as part of a regular process to monitor the state of the collapse.
