Another Evening In Smallcleugh Mine, Nenthead

There has been so much written and published through every media channel conceivable on just how wet it has been this winter, bright days like today have been the exception rather than the norm and I've largely put the Lakeland Fells on hold so far this year, similarly there have been no trips down to Ingleton and no caving in the Yorkshire Dales.

However, it has had its compensations. I do enjoy exploring the mines at Nenthead (and elsewhere for that matter), so wet weather has on occasion made such activity the only viable option. It was with this in mind that I took a group of six guys on a guided trip to Wheel Flats. We exited via an abseil out of the flats and a look at the archaeology in Gulley Back Cross Cut.

An added bonus of the trip was the opportunity to take some GoPro3 footage using the extra lighting kit I've recently purchased. There are some photos & a short video below:
