Intake Dale Mine Update
« on: December 20, 2019, 08:08:24 pm »
JonP - Great trip, started with pre-beers.

RobE - I dug the choke.

JonP - I cut some scaf.

RobE - Got through the choke to a draughting pitch head, but got no rope.

JonP - Great result, out in time for pub

 ;D ;D ;D

Good work folks - we are all busy at the moment aren't we? Looking good for the future in many areas - as long as no-one gets squashed over Xmas ;)

Plenty of opportunity for getting squashed in Intake Dale Mine, unless there's been a lot of gardening done! Definitely somewhere to avoid if you're nervous about going under stacked deads apparently supported by rotting toothpicks....
Dirty old mines need love too....

In that order, or actually the other way around?

No, it's upstream of Bagshawe, and closer to the end of Bagshawe than the entrance of Bagshawe.

Downstream in IDM ends in sumps, but upstream is one big choke, Black Jack!  :thumbsup:

Well done gang. The engine shaft top is more or less in the floor of the dale, as the gin circle platform is cut into the bedrock above it - a very nice feature. I do wonder if any soughs had a (unknown) branch to here, at the bottom of the shaft?

Also don't forget if you walk along the rake eastwards (past the entrance and up the slope) there's what appears to be a climbing shaft under a big white slab near the ruined coe. It may just drop into the bits we already know, but equally it may not ;)

It's hard sticking to 5 word trip reports, but it does save a lot of time for everyone trying to keep up...
