Floor 9 Cutting - Dec '09

This is thought to have been a late attempt to get at good slate at depth - this cutting was excavated to allow an adit to be driven below the existing quarry bottom floor 8. The excavation severed the tramway link to the floor 8 incline and all the western side of the quarry - but it was futile.
