Thought after lurking on here for ages I should introduce myself n say hi.
As the user name surest I'm Jeff, currently I'm living in the slate capital (blaenau) I've been into caves/mountains and mines for a couple of decades recreationaly. I did used to work as a geo survey driller for the quarries/mines back down the dirty south East of england (my original home). I'm also massively obsessed with victorian history and all things steam, which is probably why now a days I work for J W Greaves as part of there tour/maintanance/exploration team.
I've probably waffled on far too long already, and if you havnt guessed by this post my spelling is atrocious for which I will apologise for now.
Kindest regards
Jeff

Hi Jeff

Welcome to A-N from one of the GoBelow Cwmorthin and Rhiwbach Team. (And very occasionally, Thursday Nighters too)

Plus a F&WHR engineering team volunteer for 50+ years...

Cheers, Clive

Sounds elite!

I think I just saw them in action in an 8 min 28 second online video of "an exploratory trip" that took place on the 10th of Jan 2019...

It's been copied and reposted all over the internet now, the urbexers are going WILD for it Shocked





Only joking, I just have a good memory... how was that heart attack? Be careful what you put on the internet.

That video was the 'B' team. There is an ultra-secretive 'A' team. No vids of those guys on FB!

You'll just find their calling card in places no man has set foot since the old one.
