I have been asked what access is like now and can you still get hold of the printed plans of the mine which used to be available from Jrat and a local pub?

Was there ever an access agreement, at any time?

This information will be of use to others I'm sure - thanks to someone on ME who provided the info
The Quarryman's Arms have copies of the surveys, (three sheets cover the whole of Box), and you can also hire a key from them to gain access to the mine. Access is not a problem either from 'Back Door', (which will get you to Cathedral quickly), or Jack's Entrance if you fancy starting in south
