Cleared roadway in Wilkinsons Level, left branch, looking inbye

This was originally dug through in the 1970s by Simon Hughes and an oil drum fitted but had corroded over time. The level beyond was a tight crawl under bad roof. This was cleared in 2018 by RF and the bad roof supported by concrete. Two thirds of the drum representing the corroded area was cut out and steelwork put in to retain the material spilling in from Childs Shaft on the left going in as shown in the photograph.
