looking for some more information on furzehill mine, Have been up there numerous times and dropped about 10 out of the 40 shafts in the space of half a mile, from what ive read they are very old workings and it certainly is a place not to be messing around with massive holes in the floor everywhere you look! there are shafts just a couple of feet away from each other, surely it would not have been easier to chase underground in stoping it out than sink another shaft?

Hello

I know the mine site very well - Have also found that none of the open shafts go anywhere as filled with far to much rubbish etc. Uncovered 2 whim plat stones (mellior to our Cornish friends) some years back.

I have a lot of info relating to this mine...

PM to make contact...
