You may well find the level leading to the water is now blocked by the slurry being tipped into the mine from the above stone works, so i would go and check that out first.

I am confused, which Long Rake are we talking about?, as I understand it the bad air is under Bradwell Moor, but the water is down the Youlgreave version, where the stone works is.

Nevertheless, access is not accepted at either site and if you upset either of the owners, expect to receive the brunt of any repercussions-----..
