There used to be quite a few people submitting underground photos on this site from the SW, but over the past year or so most seem to have drifted away. Hopefully the site didn't offend anybody Laugh

There has been a suggestion (ok, I suggested it!) of a Cornish meet towards the end of next summer Thumbs Up

There are quite a few, but try these

http://www.tinmining.co.uk/

Its the St Just Mine Research Society

Also http://carnbreaminingsociety.co.uk/

There is quite a lot of exploration going on down there.

Visit www.mine-explorer.co.uk and look at the thread "Carbis Bay Crew"

Further to the west is the Devon Mining Club and the Plymouth Caving Group.

Great to hear Plymouth/Devon is further west from St Just/Carbis Bay. Always thought it was a bit wet around here! IP: 62.171.194.24

A meet down here would be a great idea and underground is the best place to be during a Cornish 'Summer'
It's generally drier for a start Laugh

And there was me thinking that the Cornish weather was six months of wind and rain, followed by winter Shocked

Come on down Thumbs Up theres lots to see, if you have a light Smartass

Would love to go down Crofty again (last time was 2006), when they are able to do this again.
But not fit enough to do lots of rope work etc and no experience either of all that sort of stuff. (Should cut down on the pasties!)
