Collapse and severe instability in
Odin Mine -
‘first hand line climb’, ‘stempled
passage’ and ‘cartgate’
The National Trust requests that no-one enters the mine until
A collapse has occurred at the base of the first hand line climb, approximately 50
metres into the mine: The entire floor has disappeared into a crater approximately
2.5m X 1.5m in size, leaving a ragged drop of approximately ten metres straight down.
The walls of this hole are a very unstable and continually falling in.
The material has all landed right in front of the stempled passage that links to the
Cartgate. The passage itself is intact, but the heap of large deads, gravel and mud that
now partially blocks it is very, very unstable, and is still moving.
Therefore, the stempled passage and, by implication the Cartgate and beyond are
currently inaccessible and very dangerous.
