SORRY FOLKS BUT I NEED TO BE CLEAR ON A COUPLE OF POINTS RE ACCESS TO SITES AND SAFETY- SEE POINTS 1 & 2
1. The existance of this website does not imply any right of access by anybody to any UK mining site referenced here within. All land is owned by somebody and it is up to you as an individual to ensure you access any site legitimately regardless of any statement or reference to access made on here, neither does no reference to access on here infer access is allowed.
2. Any individual shall be responsible for their own safety on any mine site and the existance of this website does not imply that a mine site is safe to visit, all liability for safety at any mine site to be found on this web site shall fall on the individual.
USE YOUR COMMON SENSE-
Although its tempting to enter old mine workings you may find during your visits to mine sites, this should not be undertaken under any circumstances by the inexperienced & ill equiped, contact a local mining club or group who can introduce you to the underground aspects of the interest properly.
Please wear sensible footwear such as strong boots and dress appropriately for the location you are visiting, mine sites are often dirty, wet, slippery and remote with loose masonry and sharp edges, there can be open overgrown shafts and hollows- SO GO PREPARED. Not so long ago I broke my ankle due to a snow covered rabbit hole in a layby by the mine I was visiting!!! It can happen in the most normal of locations let alone a remote mine on say a moor or up a mountain, better the preparation the less the chance of an accident.
Even as an experienced surface explorer and former regular underground explorer I always tell somebody where I am going and when I'll be back, even roughly will do, if injured this could save your life especially in winter time!.
