sorry if i beat anyone to this post and yes theirpics will be better lol..
Right first off visited with a great bunch of guys..way too many too name but here goes..myself..unclebulgaria,fortknox,frosty,obscurity,night walker,phil and sorry mate forgot your name I had a little help with some of the light painting and a bit of camera assistance from frosty,cheers mate! Right this place was in operation until 1914 when the locals got very worried due to lack of thought of how it was mined that their properties would fall into the mines!After this it was used as a folly for local village events..during ww2 the home guard used the longer section as a rifle range and then after the war it was opened up as a tourist attraction briefly..and at some point rumour has it it was used for religious ceremonies, entrance is on private property and must have permission for any sort of visit!
this pic i cant take any credit for..dr knox took this..
right thats my evening summed up with pitures great visit thx to everyone involved!
