Wow, that's an amazing postcard, thanks Mark.
A better one of Stoney West? without the trees, the Delph on the rightWow, that's an amazing postcard, thanks Mark.
Do you think that's actually Cucklet Delf running off to the right? With one of the crags of Stoney West in the background? It's just I can't think of a buttress overlooking Eyam Dale like the one near the top right of the picture...
I'm definitely going to check (it's only a 5 minute drive from Tidza )
Wow, that one is sublime... And yes, definitely Cucklet Delf in the previous picture - though I've just realised that you originally noted that Eyam Dale was off to the right (of the photographer) rather than that the side valley in the picture was Eyam Dale. My mistake, though worth making so I could see the second photo which is just amazing.
An outward draught at the entrance cannot be created from a higher supposed shaft, an higher shaft would draw air In and give vent to the highest discharge to open airI too have noticed a good outward draught at the entrance but only on a warm day, when I too assumed it's heading down the shaft above and out via the right hand level. Did you notice inside where the draught was originating from. The fans do mean that any new draught is definitely worth investigating...
That depends on the outside temperature. In warm weather (warmer outside than inside the cave/mine) air will tend to be sucked in top entrances and blown out lower entrances.An outward draught at the entrance cannot be created from a higher supposed shaft, an higher shaft would draw air In and give vent to the highest discharge to open air
