A explore of an old slate mine. The mining started a few hundred years ago but is abandoned for several decades. This mine is not the safest and some parts are already collapsed. All the train rails are gone but you can see where they were. Only some bats live in these parts now. The white dots on the walls are all dead spiders with a layer of calcium. Not sure why there were so much dead spiders there.

The person with whom I  exploring with had done the research of this mine. You had to walk some distance through the woods to get to the entrance. .

There was yet another level but we couldn't make a safe connection point for a rope so we skipped that. It was a steep incline 10 meters down.

1 all the white dots are dead spiders.

It sure was. Makes you think about the men who had to work there.

This is awesome, some really nice colours in mines. I've often seen white coated spiders and wondered why they are like that, now I know haha
