Mine Access Problems - a rumour
« on: February 26, 2007, 09:44:16 pm »
The following has been posted elsewhere on the web:

'Rumour has it, from a web page, that the National Farmers Union of Wales has recommended to all its clients, that access to mines on their land should be prevented, with the result that there is now no access to Pandora Mine, nr Llanwrst.'

Is anyone aware of whether this is true?

fuckwits!  :spank: more problems for us mine explorers....  >:( all we wanna do is enjoy these places like you cavey lot  :annoyed:

Cross posted to Darkplaces, one of our Welsh members might have an answer. I know Pandora has had access problems even though it was OK'ed for use by organisations. The top shaft was closed or capped or access denied. Cracking mine... :( Forest Enterprise has never been explorer friendly.

John Hine [Mole] is contacting the FU of Wales today to find out a bit more. I'm away for a few days - if you want to keep up to date check out the Mining History group mails at http://www.jiscmail.ac.uk/cgi-bin/webadmin?A1=ind0702&L=mining-history and look for the LOSS OF MINE ACCESS topic.
