More info on Lead rake in Bradwell?
« on: August 08, 2021, 04:20:16 pm »
Does anyone have any more info on this lead rake in Bradwell? spotted it yesterday and had a quick peek today trying not to get off the path.


Any idea of the name of the rake, or names of some of the mines on it would be great.


I have tried Aditnow registry and also had a quick flick through Nellie Kirkham, but I've drawn a blank so far.

Sorry to answer my own question, less haste!

It's apparently the "Dirty Half Acres" area

and the mines on it are:
Luck founder
George palfreymans founder
All a chance
Never Fear
Union Venture
Lime
