Hi Katie. I had a job in Stoney this afternoon, and, as I'd agreed with Bill that I'd check that there weren't still any digging tools left in John's dig at Layby Shelter, I nipped in there on my way down the Dale ... and I did wonder whether your picture was how it might have looked in an earlier stage of the dig. So that's my guess.

No, afraid not - but still in the right catchment so will get there eventually!

Alan, pretty sure SUSS have taken on Layby shelter, so any digging tools left there are probably theirs :)

If they have taken it over, they haven't left any. There were only two plastic kibbles and some rope, which I left in situ.

I actually bumped into SUSS in Carlswark, where I was working later on today, and they were removing their tools from their dig in Dynamite Passage - so maybe they were going to Layby Shelter.

Hey! I hope we haven't hi-jacked this thread! I'll be getting a knock on the door from Paul late at night!!!

Old Tor Mine used to look a bit like that many years ago.

I have to confess to having no photographs of Derbyshire caves.

In 2000, when I moved from Sheffield to live in Eyam, Badlad gave me a hand and we took a lot of old furniture to the local tip. The following week, when I was trying to find all my photographs, slides, negatives, a number of cameras and other photographic gear I remembered the last time I had seen them. They were in a bedside cabinet that we had taken to the tip. I went back to the tip to see if it was still there but, as I expected, it had long gone. Since then I've done a lot of my caving with Robbie Shone so never felt the need to take up photography again. I prefer being in them. I was never any good at it anyway. I suppose its a lot less likely that you would lose your entire photographic collection these days. Despite my stupidity I was insured for the loss of the cameras, but that was little consolation for the loss of over 20 years of caving memories.

I'll let Phil go instead as I know he's got loads of Derbyshire photographs.

Sorry Bograt, they were all purchased (by me) from Harrisons Photography in Sheffield.

If you're wanting a specific location, I'd guess it's somewhere on the Knowlegates sough horizon in the lower workings, going by the fact it's partially sumped?

Bang on. It's about the only standing water I ever saw in the place. Reassuring, in one sense ;)
