Massive stop

A shot of a massive stope, although it does not give any idea of scale. Above a vertical wall proved impossible to climb in the wet, although suggested more floors above, below were at least three floors to the bottom of the shaft.

Drws y Coed copper mine, Nantlle valley, north Wales.
