A chance message about access as i remembered someone getting caught in the grounds a little while ago. Couple of weeks later back in Wiltshire we managed to get in. Nice to see one of the lesser known mines in the area.
Some History (mrca)
Singleway Mine, is a small underground quarry probably as a result of the poor quality stone. The entrance had collapsed but was re-opened in 2009. A short vertical drop requiring a scramble down a boulder slope leads into a 3m high and 2m wide passage with passages branching off right and left to complexes of workings. The main passage continues straight ahead and terminates in a similar complex.
Thanks for looking
Visited at the start of our Wales trip back in May. Wanting to see this is what inspired the whole trip to be honest, it is probably one of the best things I have seen in a while, it looks untouched for decades.
It must have been a grim place to have ended up in.
Found this place through a friend fairly local to me. Someone is keeping an eye on it as in the times that I have been, things have been moved about and windows have been secured again.

An accidental find while picking up car parts, the tail end of a plane caught my attention which was a good enough excuse for a mooch for me.
Now it is debatable of abandoned or not as these are actually sitting at the entrance to an action park in Essex and the remains of the plane are sitting in what can only be described as a scrappie.
However on closer inspection and checking over the action parks website, they are without a doubt abandoned or at least left by the action park owners to rust away.
Unfortunately the truck looks as though it was used as a “show piece” at some stage of its life with a fake missile poking out the side, more disappointingly the whole interior had been removed.
The tracked vehicles actually looked in better condition and what I could see through the dirty windows, the entire interiors were still intact. Downside is they were all locked.
History on them? Well, I guess what you see below is what you get! If anyone can name the vehicles, even better!
