Hi tim

The rasp is no more.

We (Saturday Afternoon team), dropped sump 3 to a canal approx 6m long. We then emptied this to find a nasty right, left duck (sporting fun) to a small beddingish chamber with a steep mud bank. This went up 1m to a further perched sump (Probably part of 3 when full). We retreated for a break cus of bad air, then returned for one last push and syphoned it out to 3. Then rob pushed through to find it still very wet and tight, though with a very small draft, and was abandoned.

We returned to the surface between 1 and 3am, having gone underground at 3pm  :sleeping:

Awesome trip though

I hope you surveyed it, otherwise we're just going to have to go back.

On a question for henry, how high can those pumps of yours pump?
could we use yours to pump Robins dig dry?

For your information - three of us (from OCC) were down Robins Shaft last Sunday.

When we got there a large rock was on top of the shaft lid. This had fallen from the left-hand side (as you look at it) of the surrounding wall on the surface. The left hand side is starting to collapse and rocks were knocked down probably by sheep or cattle.

If the lid is left open, the next rock could easily fall straight down the shaft...   :o

You may want to ensure the shaft lid is kept in place or even better sort out the loose section of the surrounding wall when you re-visit the dig.
I'm not a complete idiot: some parts are missing!

Cheers Paul,we're aware of the state of the retaining wall, but we normally find a large rock in the middle of the lid. Did it look like it had fallen there or put, because everytime we go its there, and we think maybe the farmer puts it there to stop his kids lifting the lid.
I hope you bought some free range eggs and rolled aroudn in our dig for us.

I would say it had fallen as there were also clods of dried mud and smaller stones.

Sorry - not this time. However Karen brought out a toad and its babies she found below by putting them in her gloves and holding the gloves in her teeth! There were quite a few curious glances from some caravaners as she was releasing them into the grass by the farmyard...

Message for Rob; please can you just check your hotmail account for an email from me? I just sent you the text of what I've put together about the Rasp for the new CDG Peak District Sump Index. It'd be great if you could just check it for me!

Thanks.
