It's a big, dryish looking passage with a lot of calcite. The fellah on the right appears to have a bit of rope around his neck. Rock possibly reddish? Difficult to say with film from a couple of decades ago. I'm wondering a limestone based S Wales iron mine. The only one I've heard of (without internet investigation) is Garth. I get a miney vibe though.

I think you may be right about the miney vibe Robin. Sure I've seen photos somewhere similar.  Draethen Roman Mine I'm thinking.  I can't be sure add I've never been in there and there is no access at the moment so unlikely to either.

So I'll go with Draethen Romsn Lead mine

And the Mudman is indeed correct.   
If at first you don't find Australia keep digging.

The only thing that surprises me is that it is not that awful Tranch Iron Mine that Alkapton keeps trying to entice me into.

If you can guess the passage/junction I'll let you have it (easy)

Recognised it immediately so thought I'd give others a chance.

Seem to remember seeing that or a very similar photo back in 94/95

That photo was taken a few weeks ago on Minion's phone. It was part of the trip report I posted on here 11 days ago!!
