jim on reflection, I think this is a photo of a fall at the end of the main drive.
Paradoxically it looked like that when we were last in there, three or four years ago.
You can, and I did go through this mess, and it leads to another stoped area.
I must emphasise however, the obvious, this is area is extremely, dodgy!

Hi John, another of John's lecture slides covering various aspects of leadmining, including various bits of mines in parlous states, he did another one on minerals (not including the piece from Jug Vein), shame about the notes ( I don't think John was the type to ad lib such things).
