Hi folks, yet again I find myself asking on forum if there is anybody out there in south wales that's active ?
I got an absolute shed full of issues and tasks to do and it would be nice to meet people in and around south wales.
Folk's i'm fed up with solo stuff and there is a lot of things in south wales that really cant be done alone !
all you people that I know are active, speak up and lets do this underground thing in groups !
Cheers folks, hopefully speak soon.Cursing

Shwmai Bill - like Ty Gwyn there are a few of us in the South Wales area. Though I am further east.

I thought Ty Gwyn would settle for 2'6' of coal!!!Smartass

hi dude, thanks for the reply, there is a lot more than coal in this area an I don't do coal hole's lol, I can show you where you can dig a 14" seam if you want coal that desperateLaugh im into lots in this area that's considered lost an that statement is wrong if you go an look with your eyes open its surprising what you find.
A lot of places have been put on the missing list cause of landowners and previous contact with what can be refered to as dickheads, sorry, but im working in a place now that's been lost for years, it took me over a year to talk the farmer round to not hunting the local mine population with his trusty gun but that is what other people achieved. Iv'e found entry into the mine but it aint easy and the start is very wet, iv'e been in the first section but I just get this feeling for life preservation that company mite not be a bad thing lol

hi dude, yea the depth of coal struck me as a bit on the greedy side lol, How much further east are you ?
I'm into looking at some of the lost stuff that get's written of for one reason or another and there are good mines out there.
two jobs in progress are looking good, one that's been written of as lost an I found a way in with the landowners help and llanfyrnach that's been out of bounds for age's because of past history an I now don't have a prob with access although that's exclusive.
Having said that im not adverse to traveling north to mid wales as I have family connections just east of aber an we all know that there is some really good holes in the ground up there.
people in this southern end of the world should try an communicate a bit cos two minds are better than one if you know what I mean !

I am in South Wales. I fairly regularly go up to North for the UCET trips I can get to, but also fairly active in the South on cloak & dagger missions - would be most interested to hear yours - I have a few that I do not discuss quite so publicly! Bridgend based, give us a shout! IP: 81.152.218.124
