Deep Ecton Pipe at adit level 1977
Copper deposits in the hill were mainly pipe type deposits and the steeply dipping lodes were followed down from (in this case) Salt's Level. This pipe now has a parallel footway next to it and the shot was taken from here looking down to the flooded pipe as it descends below the natural drainage (adit) level. A bit of an awe inspiring place, not to say a little disturbing, when someone throws a stone down one of the shafts from the hill top!
