After that my companion in crime did  some great research in this one we went to visit this mine An explore to the deep underground of an abandoned slate mine. Unfortunately, the lower section were completely flooded but still a lot to explore, with wading trough knee deep water.

Strange to find a water powered generator down there (it is not a pump). We stayed here for several hours.

1 going down at  a 40° angle.

Liking this a lot. The old cart and the machinery really make it for me.
