Looks to be somewhere in New Zealand...

Think the Peak cavers might need a clue Rob!

I would guess but that might be considered cheating.......

Excellent logic Mark. Yes, it's the bypass to the sump in Pools Chamber.

I should have kept schtum, I'm a bit lacking in suitable photos right now. I'll have to deviate from usual form and go for a wazzit rather than a wezzit on account of the only people having been down this particular mine since the 1950s spar miners being myself and pwhole!

So, instead let's have the most inventive or entertaining explanation for what is depicted in this bit of graffiti the spar miners left behind....
