Cromford. Yet another Kirkham Projext!

Unnamed mine shaft in Cromford.

Len and his team have been busy yet again in the village of Cromford. A shaft appeared in a nature reserve quite close to a public footpath. Len manufactured a “bat friendly” cap and he and John fitted it. It allows access to cavers who have permission. He descended about 8 m to find it blocked with branches from nearby trees. Len is hoping to descend the rest of the shaft, which he estimates is 25 to 30m deep, before the bats return to their winter hibernation sites.
