Does anyone know what the access situation is with Greenside Mine??
And, for the through trip - is it easy to find the way and what ropes are required etc....?
Any info would be great.
Ask Jagman on the Darkplaces Forum,it's in his neck of the woods I think.
I knew someone in the '60s who said he wouldn't go in there without lead underpants.
Dunc - Are you meaning Greenside Mine above Glenridding?? Because if you are you might want to contact Chris Jones. I know he was instrumental in opening the route in the early nineties. I also know the bottom end is locked so you will need to figure out access (at least it was a few years ago when I last wandered up there).
CATMHS are the main body of mine exploration in Cumbria so they might be a good source of information.
I have never done the through trip... but I have been up to the upper entrance... it is quite a walk!!

Yes that's the one..
Cheers for the info Mole and CN.. will look into it..
You'll have to let me know how you come on with it all.... back then there were still a lot of ladderways in place.... but they degrade pretty quickly!! Have you ever been to the Plumbago Mines in Borrowdale or Coniston Copper Mines... they are a novel jaunt on a rainy day!
