Roof pendants and sediments in Potter's Heaven. There seems to have been sequential development here with the conduit originally phreatic. The stal overlying the sediments in some places indicates that the passage was open and relatively dry for some time.





Incoming !  Jill's dig.



Black stal. Jill's Slither.



Mud bank at the very end of Jill's dig. Water pushed through the hole appears to enter a bigger section with a pool.

Ooo. Do leave your giant balloon in place for Tuesday. I must get a photo. :bounce:

Potter's never dries out as far as I know. Even when not flooded it is horribly gooey and sticky. I made no effort to see the chamber at the end as getting there would have meant being plastered. I recall Peter saying that Never Ever Land does rise up out of the mud a bit but the journey there would put most folk off. Jill's dig is almost civilised by comparison and when the tube has been floored with conveyor belt it should make removing the dig tray much easier as it continually sticking hampered operations last year.
If it's that clean you can dig at the sharp end next week :lol:
