Visited with Paul Powers and 2nd explore of my second day up there at his place!Doing a report on this one first though mainly for the reason i like these pictures enough to want to share on here,and there on my pc ready to go

Brief and i mean brief exerct of history taken from tut net

Holme Bank was the last of two operational chert mines in Derbyshire the other being the Pretoria Mine, both at Bakewell. Access was from adits in a quarry at Bank Top and the steep workings extended beneath the road to connect with the earlier Greenfield shaft. The chert bed lies on a 1 in 3.7 gradient and the mine was subject to flooding in severe winters. Illumination was by mains electricity in addition to carbide lamps carried by the miners.

Pranged my head pretty hard in here by being a twat who wasn't really looking where i was going

pics..


















Thanks for looking and i must say it's a bloody lovely mine,we by no means covered the lot but there was some fairly fresh looking roof falls and i had other places to go.

800x600 or the smallest "large' size on flickr fits portrait shots side by side on here i think mate, although flickr is a cock lately like you said :D
