Thought the scaffolder would have had his impact driver on a lanyard but that would have spoilt all your fun
so in round numbers, at 2m diameter at the bottom, that would be about 25 cubes per hour refill rate.
The number of Health and Safety laws that have been broken on this occasion by the company who put out the call on Facebook are considerable and if the HSE got wind of it, heads would certainly roll. The fines could likely run into the 10’s if not 100’s of thousands of £‘s!!!Whilst, as Pitlamp says, it might be good PR for the caving community I’d be more inclined to accept the donation and pull this thread from the forum before it is spotted by the powers that be.Mark
Any other cavers been asked to do non caving jobs?
Back in the early 80’s the TSG did a similar exercise for a mining company in Derbyshire. I can’t remember the name of it but it was on the right between Calver and Bakewell at the Calver end of the road. Chris Rhodes and I descended a similar sized shaft to recover a load of wriggly tin that had been thrown down the water pumping shaft and damaged the pumping hoses.In return the mining company gave us access to explore another more interesting shaft on their land.
