Hi all, just a quick question, I am off to Cornwall for a few days and going to do this mine, is there anything safety wise I should be aware off.

Thanks Ian.

The voices are people on the car park, the run in adit is just below it at about about stream level. The sound seems to conduct somehow.

I once had someone''s lamp in for repair and they told me that they had a ''Petzl Duo'' that they could use. I didn''t sleep well that night and got up early to finish their lamp.
