Old Ash Mine, Lords and Ladies Mine
« on: November 24, 2019, 11:01:29 am »
I've not been in there for 30 years.

Does anyone have any info on these that they could share or tips?.

Current access agreement is (IIRC) to phone Lobby Farm beforehand to arrange getting the Old Ash key, their contact details should be on the DCA website. The Barnatt-Worthington survey for both mines is available here: https://pdmhs.co.uk/MiningHistory/Bulletin%2016-3%20-%20Using%20Coal%20to%20Mine%20Lead%20-%20Firesetting%20at%20Peak%20District%20Mines.pdf

I'd be interested to know if the latex lady is still there in Lords and Ladies.... :lol:

I have done Lords and Ladies this year and didn't notice a latex lady..... But maybe I am just unobservant?
It did have a sheep skull guarding each entrance though!

The latex lady was a blow-up doll that used to be just inside the upper entrance to L&L; she was looking pretty deflated when I was last there several years ago so may now have been given indecent burial...
