Wet Again At Nenthead

The last visit to Nenthead mines, incredibly in May, nearly resulted in a written off car in flood waters on the Alston Road! Today wasn't quite that extreme but its poured down all day. 

Aims for the day were quite straightforward, Paul Rich is preparing for a Cave-Mine conversion assessment so we went in Rampgill to look at features; hazards; points of interest etc. Overall the trip was uncomplicated but we were not aware of the shored-up collapse (see below) just inside the mine entrance.

So below are just a few photos of what we saw.
