Thanks HRM for posting that and letting us experience what it's like down there in those mines. Me being a little bit "plumpish" and together with my somewhat paranoia of being wedged into a tight spot, I would probably never experience that first hand but watching your vid was probably as close to the experience that I will ever get, so thanks once again.

....and of course, always be careful down there, some of those old timbers sure looked like they has seen much better days.

affraid affraid affraid affraid affraid  Sweet Farkin Jaysus!!! having long known that I was somewhat claustrophobic I recently at Xmas time while on a holiday in WA took a look into a cave system at Yallingup, BIG MISTAKE!!!! after an hour or so in the cave it was fair to say that I have established conclusively my claustrophobia is real! and as long as my ass points to the ground I shall NEVER! repeat that venture, how you bring yourself to go into that hell below I will never understand  No , if it were me there would have been clear signs of retreat and severe staining of the walls and floor at about the 30 second mark, I can only admire your adventures from afar as I will never experience them first hand, take care and be safe. Wink

Hi HRM,
I just have to say thanks for sharing your experience of going into those Spooky mines.
It's amazing what/how the old timers dug these tunnels, just Amazing!

I have been in a couple of mines about 27 years ago, weren't as bad as that one  affraid 
I wouldn't do it now, just a big chicken at my age, I also Suffer from claustrophobia..

You make sure that you take care when doing what you seem to LOVE to do
As it's a lonnngggg wayyyy down some of those deep shafts!!  V12 

So take care and stay safe
